Bee School

first_imgThe Southwest Georgia Beekeepers Club will hold a bee school on March 29 from 8:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the Parks at Chehaw in Albany, Ga.Formed in 2011, the SOWEGA Beekeepers Club is a growing group of bee enthusiasts from southwest Georgia. The University of Georgia Extension office in Dougherty County is sponsoring the workshop. It will cover the art of beekeeping, hive equipment, honey production and how to manage a hive for pollination. Participants will work with live bees (if they desire) and receive a “My Hive Tool” DVD.The $30 registration fee includes the course, take home materials, lunch and a club membership. Register online at sowegabeekeepers.org.Backyard gardener Calvin King has been a member of the club for three years, when he first decided to order his first bees.“I began keeping bees when I suddenly realized that after three years of maintaining a garden, I had not seen a single bee in my vegetable garden nor in my flower garden. The first summer after installing a hive in my backyard, I not only had honeybees in the gardens, but other types of bees and more butterflies as well,” he said.King calls the honey that his bees produce an added benefit to his now healthier backyard environment.The SOWEGA Beekeepers Club meets every second Thursday at 6:30 p.m., at the Creekside Education Center in the Parks of Chehaw, Albany, Ga.For more information about the club or the bee school, call (229) 336-5952, email [email protected] or see the club’s website at sowegabeekeepers.org.last_img read more

Beck’s Hybrids Makes Five-Year, $1 Million Commitment to Ohio State

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest A water quality effort and the Farm Science Review at The Ohio State University received a $1 million boost from Beck’s Hybrids, to be contributed over the next five years in monetary and in-kind support.The gift was announced Thursday, May 21.Beck’s Hybrids is the largest family-owned retail seed company in the United States and is based in Atlanta, Indiana. Beck’s has a location in London, Ohio, and serves farmers in eight Midwestern states.“We are supporting Field to Faucet and the Farm Science Review because they are important to farmers, and farmers are important to us,” said Scott Beck, president of the company.The university’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences launched Field to Faucet shortly after dangerous microcystin levels from harmful algae in Lake Erie shut down Toledo’s water supply for two days in August 2014. The new program’s goal is to ensure safe drinking water while maintaining an economically productive agricultural sector.Ohio State’s Farm Science Review is a three-day educational and trade show event held each September at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center outside London, Ohio.“We know farmers work hard to protect the environment, and we hope our support of Field to Faucet will give them more tools to protect Ohio’s water resources,” Beck said. “And FSR is where many in agriculture go to learn about the latest in farming.”Beck’s owns property adjacent to the Review site where the company will highlight its joint research with CFAES’s outreach arm, Ohio State University Extension.“Beck’s Hybrids’ great generosity will go far in advancing the objectives of Field to Faucet,” said Bruce McPheron, Ohio State’s vice president for agricultural administration and dean of CFAES. “Clearly, Beck’s shares our goal of identifying best practices for nutrient management. And their support of Farm Science Review— the largest university-sponsored event of its kind in the country — will greatly enhance our outreach effort.”“By cooperating with Ohio State on these water quality projects and supporting the mission of the Farm Science Review, we want to help farmers become more productive and successful while protecting Ohio’s important natural resources,” Beck said. “We expect this to be the beginning of a long partnership with the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at Ohio State.”last_img read more

What Google Got Wrong With Its Google Docs App For iOS

first_imgTags:#Android#App Store#Apple#apps#docs#documents#Google#Google Play#iOS#mobile anthony myers Serverless Backups: Viable Data Protection for … Cloud Hosting for WordPress: Why Everyone is Mo… Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting The new Google Docs app for iOS is doing well in Apple’s App Store at the moment—but it’s faring much less well with actual iPhone and iPad users, at least to judge from their reviews.See also: How Google Docs And Sheets Stack Up To iWork And OfficeAccording to data from app-analytics firm App Annie, Google Docs is currently the number-three free app for iPad—where it’s edged out number five Microsoft Office for iPad—and the number 15 free app for iPhone. Docs is a new standalone word-processing app, part of Google’s now-unbundled Google Drive cloud-storage app.iOS users, however, aren’t pleased with the breakup, which saddled them with a Docs app that was already less full-featured than its Android counterpart. On average, roughly 650 users have rated Docs a fairly miserable two stars. In addition to its lack of formatting options—no support for images, tables or hyperlinks—they complain that the app won’t let them file their documents in folders or sort them in useful ways, that there’s no way to export files, and that there’s no spellcheck. How Intelligent Data Addresses the Chasm in Cloud Google Drive isn’t doing well in the App Store, either; the rating for its most recent version is only one-and-a half stars. In part, that seems to reflect the fact that its latest update removed file-edit functions, and instead punts iOS users to Docs (or Sheets for spreadsheets) if they want to make changes. Android users, by contrast, have apparently been spared that downgrade for Drive. On the flip side, some iOS users do seem to appreciate the fact that Docs allows them to edit files offline, although they are a distinct minority among reviewers. Needless to say, it’s difficult to know whether people who take the time to submit a review are representative of most users or not. But they’re clearly unhappy.By contrast, Android users find Docs much more tolerable; it holds a 4.4-star rating on the Google Play store.Lead image by Flickr user Laurie Sullivan, CC 2.0last_img read more

In times of trouble, radio plays just music in Kashmir

first_imgFor 12 days now, it’s back-to-back songs and no shows on all five major FM radio channels in Kashmir, in the wake of the complete communication blockade, including the Internet. Vijdan, a Radio Jockey (RJ) with ‘Radio Mirchi,’ is waiting for the restoration of the Internet to get connected with his fan base again. “It’s difficult to reach office due to security restrictions. With Internet and phones down since August 5, it is impossible to produce shows. We are running back-to-back songs for now,” Vijdan told The Hindu. There are five popular FM stations in Kashmir valley. All were started to provide entertainment to the young population of the Valley, where cinema halls were closed down in 1990s. Though there was a bid to reopen cinemas in 1999, it failed to take off. RJ Nasir of FM Tadka used to run a popular show, ‘Srinagar Local 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.’ The show would run songs on listeners’ demand. “I would receive around 50 calls from listeners for my show. These are difficult times to reach out to our audience base. The absence of Internet ‘derailed’ my ‘Srinagar Local’ too. I check the Internet connection every day but feel sad to see the red light on since August 5. My show completely depends on the Internet connection,” Mr. Nasir told The Hindu.In an indication of the ground situation, the government-run Doordarshan and Radio Kashmir too have had to discontinue with popular debate shows, as the offices remain out of bounds for civilians and participants because of extra security deployment around these installations.last_img read more
