Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast November 14, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Dry and sunny through most of the day today as we are in-between systems. However, clouds will start to build later this afternoon, particularly in south and southwest Ohio ahead of our approaching moisture surge from the south. It should be a nice day today in many areas, but still chilly.Moisture is coming about 6 hours faster with our next event. By this evening, moisture will be pushing into far southern Ohio and will be fully across the southern quarter of the state midnight tonight. From there, moisture spreads across the rest of the state through the overnight and through Friday morning . We are keeping liquid equivalent precipitation totals at a few hundredths to .5”, with coverage at 90% of the state. Snow totals will be from a coating to 3” with coverage at 75% of the state. The southern third of the state may end up with lesser snow potential with more rain around. Temps over Ohio look to largely be above 35 degrees through the day tomorrow, which will allow snow flakes to fall, but perhaps not stick around as much to accumulate. Or, we may see predominately rain in some areas. It all comes down to temperatures tomorrow, and right now that is what makes Ohio tough to call on rain v. snow. Either way, all precipitation should be done by sunrise Friday.  The map at right shows potential snow through Friday morning.We should be dry in all areas Friday afternoon through next Wednesday. This is a drier forecast, as we are taking precipitation out on Saturday. There can be some clouds around, but the disturbance is losing moisture quickly, and will have nothing left as it drifts across the state. The weekend should be decent.While we are taking moisture out for the weekend and giving a longer dry window in this forecast this morning, we are going to have to pay for it. That comes next Thursday, on thanksgiving. We are projecting clouds to increase through the midday and early afternoon, and we can’t rule out a bit of moisture, light rain and light snow, from late afternoon through the evening. Rain continues through Black Friday. Totals do not look too dramatic, but still, we will be calling for a few hundredths to .3” with 75% coverage.The extended 11-16 day period starts drier, and we are taking rain out of the forecast for the 24th. However, we are leaving a good slug of moisture in or the 25th and 26th. To be clear, we are still taking about all rain, as temps begin to climb after thanksgiving.  Since we are lopping the 24th off of this precipitation event, we are drawing the top end of the rain projection back slightly and are looking for half to 1.5” rain totals, with coverage at 90%. A second minor batch of moisture arrives a few days later around the 28th and 29th but should produce under .25” of moisture. We cool down with that system and may have to look at a rain/snow mix.last_img read more

The Wait is Over! Metabones Releases Micro Four Thirds to EF Speedbooster

first_imgSpeedboosting Power1 Stop The adapter will work with most Canon Lenses with the exception of Canon EF-S lenses (some non-Canon lenses may be incompatible with the Speedbooster). To get a full list, check out the Speedbooster’s spec page on the Metabones website.Pricing and AvailabilityCurrently Metabones’ EF to MFT Speedbooster is retailing for $599. You can also get a Canon EF to MFT adapter-only for $399.  There is currently no word on when both adapters will be available, but we anticipate it will be soon.Are you excited about this new adapter?Let us know in the comments below. Metabones latest Speedbooster opens a world of possibilities for those with Canon lenses.At the beginning of the digital filmmaking craze, shooting with a DSLR was a no brainer, especially if you used a camera like a Canon Mark ii. DSLRs offered incredible dynamic range, shallow depth of field, and amazing interchangeable lenses…a major leap in camera technology. But with more cameras hitting the market there are many non-DSLR options out there for the indie-filmmaker.The Blackmagic 2.5K cinema camera and the mirrorless Panasonic GH4 are attracting a significant filmmaker user base. Both of these cameras offer high-resolution,  incredible dynamic range, and the ability to shoot RAW footage. But if you were one of the early adopters of DSLRs for filmmaking you probably have a collection of Canon EF lenses that don’t fit the Micro Four Third lens mount on these Blackmagic and Panasonic cameras. So your options have been limited…until now.Metabones, the popular speedbooster and adapter company, have created a Canon EF to Micro Four Thirds Speedbooster that allows users to attach Canon lenses to any cameras that have a Micro Four Thirds mount. This comes a few months after the release of the Canon EF to MFT mount that was created exclusively for the Blackmagic Pocket Camera. We can’t wait to try out this new product.EF to MFT Speedbooster Specs Focal Reduction0.71x Image StabilizationYeslast_img read more

Candidates with unique stories mark victory in the polls

first_imgPune: The results to the civic polls in the Pimpri-Chinchwad and Pune Municipal Corporations, which witnessed an unprecedented Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) sweep, also put a spotlight on a number of unusual candidates, who were different from the clichéd crorepati corporators.For 21-year-old Computer Science graduate Prachi Alhat, her win from Panel 26 (encompassing the city’s Kondhwa-Mohammadwadi area) was doubly sweet as she became the youngest candidate to win the election. She withstood the BJP’s wave by winning comfortably on a Shiv Sena ticket. The party itself barely managed to win 10 seats in the PMC.Ms. Alhat said, “My win is yet to sink in. I had planned to take up a job in the IT sector, but this win has altered my dreams. Now I’m eager to work towards the development of my ward in particular, and society in general.” Her exultant family has not stopped distributing sweets since the news came through. Ms. Alhat graduated from the city’s St. Mira’s College for Girls. A political neophyte, she was a silver lining in the Sena’s dark cloud in the PMC polls. Her family has also been in politics for a while. Her husband, Ashish Alhat, is a dedicated Sena worker.Likewise, Ashwini Landge did her party, the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), proud by being its only candidate to win a seat in the PMC polls.Ms. Landge, one of the few Christian candidates in the fray, won from Panel 6 (the city’s Yerwada area), thereby securing a foothold fro her party in Pune’s politics. She is well-regarded for her social work in her area, and has earned respect for her efforts to improve basic amenities like water-supply and sanitation.Inspirational winThe most inspiring story of them all is that of Rajashree Kale (32), a single mother who works as a humble peon in the city’s Abasaheb Garware College.Ms. Kale contested on a BJP ticket from Panel 7 in the city’s University-Wakdewadi area. She hails from Solapur district and is a member of the nomadic Pardhi community. She arrived in Pune in 2004, soon after her marriage, only to be abandoned by her husband following the birth of her daughters.Her job as peon with the Abasaheb Garware College has sustained her family for the last several years. The college authorities speak admiringly of her as a woman of great stoicism and courage, who displayed a keen awareness of social problems.Speaking to reporters after Thursday’s results, Ms. Kale said, “I never imagined I would contest an election. Our community is very backward. The BJP gave me an opportunity and party workers worked very hard for my victory.” Ms. Kale won .Ms. Kale’s kin say that her win has opened a new window of opportunity for their community. Rekha Shinde, Ms. Kale’s younger sister, said, “We are four sisters and a brother and she [Rajashree] was always the sharpest among us.” Police in politicsThe BJP’s Dhanraj Ghogare, a former police constable, made his political debut on Thursday with his maiden win.Mr. Ghogare was up against a stiff competition in the NCP-Congress dominated Panel 25 in the city’s Wanowrie area.He said, “While I was aware that competition was exceedingly tough, my father, who was with the State Police Reserve Force (SPRF), had forged enduring bonds with the citizens here. I, too, have continued this tradition of maintaining a personal connect.”The panel was especially noteworthy as the incumbent Mayor, the NCP’s Prashant Jagtap, contested from here and won.last_img read more

Iran fallout: United suspends Newark-Mumbai flights

first_imgUnited on Friday announced the suspension of its Newark-Mumbai flight service in view of growing tensions between the United States and Iran.On Thursday, Iran shot down a drone belonging to the US over Tehran-controlled airspace over the Strait of Hormuz and the Gulf of Oman. “Given the current events in Iran, we have conducted a thorough safety and security review of our India service through Iranian airspace and decided to suspend our service,” United said on its website, but did not say how long the suspension would last. However, Swedish airline and airport tracker Flightradar24 said the suspension was initially for three days.The Mumbai-Newark flight on Thursday night was cancelled and the airline will now operate a non-commercial flight to Honolulu on Saturday. Meanwhile, Air India officials said all their operations to the US and Europe were on schedule. “We have not received any advisory from the government or authorities handling Iranian airspace. In the wake of the Pakistan airspace closure, all our flights go through Tehran-controlled airspace,” a senior official said.OPSGROUP, a blog site that offers safety guidance to air operators, said commercial aircraft were flying very close to the unpiloted Global Hawk at the time that it was shot down. “The threat of a civil aircraft shootdown in southern Iran is real. Avoiding the Strait of Hormuz area is recommended – misidentification of aircraft is possible,” it said in a blog post.The unmanned drone that was shot down is said to have a wingspan larger than a Boeing 737 jetliner.The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued an emergency order to US civil aircraft, prohibiting all American aircraft operators from entering the Tehran Flight Information Region in the area above the Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman.By way of a Notice to Airmen that was issued at 1.48 a.m. UTC or 7.18 a.m. Indian Standard Time on June 21, FAA specifically prohibited any US airline or aircraft operator from flying within Iranian airspace in the region that the US drone was shot down in. In a statement, the US FAA said, “Although the exact location of the attack is not yet available, there were numerous civil aviation aircraft operating in the area at the time of the intercept. According to flight tracking applications, the nearest civil aircraft was operating within approximately 45 nm of the Global Hawk when it was targeted by the Iranian SAM.”FAA, it said further, “remains concerned about the escalation of tension and military activity within close proximity to high volume civil air routes and Iran’s willingness to use long-range SAMs in international airspace with little to no warning. As a result, there is concern about the potential for misidentification or miscalculation which could result in the inadvertent targeting of civil aviation.”last_img read more

There were two times he [the referee] stopped it when he was making the decisions. We weren’t sure why.”I was sure it didn’t hit my hand but then you start thinking, ‘did it?’ I tried to make sure it didn’t touch it so I could get the strike away.”We know we have a world-class team so it’s about showing what we can do when things don’t go our way. It’s important we turn it around. We know how good we are, we just have to start showing it on the pitch.” last_img read more

In the news today March 22

first_imgFive stories in the news for Friday, March 22———SENTENCING FOR DRIVER IN BRONCOS BUS CRASHA truck driver who caused the deadly Humboldt Broncos crash is to be sentenced in a Saskatchewan courtroom today. Jaskirat Singh Sidhu of Calgary pleaded guilty earlier this year to 29 counts of dangerous driving. Sidhu barrelled through a stop sign and into the path of the junior hockey team’s bus at a rural Saskatchewan intersection last April. Sixteen people were killed and 13 were injured. The Crown wants the 30-year-old sentenced to 10 years in prison, while the defence says other cases suggest a range of 1 1/2 to 4 1/2 years is appropriate.———TRUCK DRIVER LIKELY TO FACE DEPORTATION: LAWYERAn immigration lawyer says the truck driver who caused the deadly Humboldt Broncos bus crash in Saskatchewan is likely to be deported to India right after he serves his sentence. Lorne Waldman, who is based in Toronto and is not involved in the case, says there’s little 30-year-old Jaskirat Singh Sidhu can do to remain in Canada. Waldman says permanent residents such as Sidhu cannot remain in the country if they commit a crime for which the maximum sentence is at least 10 years or their jail sentence is more than six months.———‘ROBOT’ DEVICE HELPS BABIES COPE WITH PAINResearchers in British Columbia have designed a “robot” that helps reduce pain for premature babies in a neonatal intensive care unit. Lead inventor and occupational therapist Liisa Holsti said the Calmer device is a rectangular platform that replaces a mattress inside an incubator and is programmed with information on a parent’s heartbeat and breathing motion. The pad on top resembles a skin-like surface. The aim is to help babies cope with pain through touch instead of medication as much as possible while they’re exposed to multiple procedures, such as the drawing of blood, which can be done multiple times a day over several months.———B.C. GROUP WANTS TO CREATE HATE ATLAS OF CANADAAn advocacy organization based in B.C. says it wants to map hatred and discrimination across Canada in a move that is prompting a warning from one civil liberties group. The Morgane Oger Foundation has issued a call for volunteers to help build the Canadian Atlas of Populist Extremism, to be known as CAPE. It says the mapping tool will tie together extremist groups and people regularly associated with them, and also map hate crimes across Canada. Micheal Vonn of the B-C Civil Liberties Association says it’s possible the project will be helpful, legal and a positive research tool, but warns there could be privacy issues involved in posting individuals’ information online.———NUGGETS RECALLED OVER SALMONELLA CONCERNThe Canadian Food Inspection Agency has announced a recall of a frozen breaded chicken product over fears of salmonella contamination. The agency says Sofina Foods Inc. is recalling Janes brand Pub Style Chicken Nuggets from the marketplace. The recall affects 800-gram packages with a best before date of December 15th. The CFIA says there have been “illnesses associated with the consumption of this product,” but it doesn’t offer any more details. It’s the third time this year the agency has announced a recall on frozen chicken nuggets, after previous notices affecting Compliments brand and Crisp & Delicious brand products.———ALSO IN THE NEWS: — The Union of National Employees holds a rally in front of the Prime Minister’s Office to call on the federal government to address issues with the Phoenix pay system.— Statistics Canada releases the consumer price index for February and retail sales figures for January.— Premier Doug Ford and Ontario Transportation Minister Jeff Yurek will make an announcement about the Ottawa LRT.The Canadian Presslast_img read more
