Resistant Corn Borer Found

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Emily UnglesbeeDTN Staff ReporterROCKVILLE, Md. (DTN) — Scientists have found populations of European corn borer in Canada that are fully resistant to the Bt trait Cry1F, sold under the brand name Herculex I.So far, the discoveries are limited to the Maritimes region, specifically Nova Scotia — where single-trait Cry1F hybrids were used. But all corn growers who still rely on single-trait corn hybrids, such as Herculex I and Herculex XTRA, are at risk, scientists told DTN.Farmers in both the U.S. and Canada should check with their seed dealer to see if they are using or have access to pyramided corn hybrids, which add additional corn borer traits such as Cry1Ab (YieldGard Corn Borer) or Cry1A.105 + Cry2Ab2 (YieldGard VT Pro).Representatives from Corteva Agriscience, which owns the Cry1F trait, told DTN that single-trait Cry1F hybrids will not be sold under any Corteva seed brands in Canada by the 2020 season — but they could not speak for other seed companies. In the U.S., use of single-trait Cry1F hybrids is still occurring in “minimal quantities” in “scattered pockets” of the country, said Clint Pilcher, global biology leader for Corteva.In addition to checking with your seed supplier, growers can use the Handy Bt Trait Table from Michigan State University to check which Bt traits they’re using: https://lubbock.tamu.edu/…. The Cry1F trait is sold under multiple brands by many seed companies via licensing agreements.Here are corn hybrids known to contain only Cry1F to control corn borer:— Herculex 1— Herculex XTRA— AcreMax1— TRIsectRemember that if you are still using a single-trait hybrid, you are required to plant a structured 20% non-Bt refuge.Corteva believes Cry1F remains effective against corn borer beyond the Maritimes region of Canada, as the company monitors for Bt resistance each year across corn-growing regions of North America, said Nick Storer, global regulatory advocacy lead for Corteva.However, scientists from the University of Guelph, who confirmed the Bt-resistant corn borer populations in Nova Scotia, are already investigating another case of unexpected corn borer injury outside of this region, said Tracey Baute, an entomologist with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.The Canadian scientists are urging all growers to be on the lookout for corn borer injury this year, Baute said. Even corn hybrids that have two corn borer traits could be compromised if one of the traits is Cry1F, since scientists don’t yet know how widespread this type of corn borer resistance is, she said.The problem is most farmers are not always watching for corn borer injury, Baute noted. Decades ago, corn borer was a major economic pest of corn — and it still is, for non-GM corn growers. But for the past 20 years, the pest has been so well controlled by Bt traits that a generation of farmers have grown up not having to scout for it, Baute explained.“We’ve all relaxed our monitoring for this pest, and now we have to go back to the drawing board,” she said.Corn borer populations are on the rise in parts of the Corn Belt where non-GM corn production is increasing, noted Michigan State University Extension entomologist Christina DiFonzo. “But I don’t get the impression that a lot of people are walking through their corn scouting for it, or know exactly what traits they are planting for it, so [resistance] could be going under the radar pretty easily.”Growers may need to reacquaint themselves with the signs of corn borer injury in corn, which include finding shot holes in corn leaves, “frass” (insect excrement) from the larva tunneling holes into the stalk, broken tassels, stalks falling over and ears dropping on the ground before harvest. See more details from this guide here: https://extension.entm.purdue.edu/….Corn borer is now the second corn pest to develop resistance to the Cry1F trait in recent years. Two years ago, scientists from Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and New York reported Cry1F-resistant populations of western bean cutworm, as well. That pest has now been removed from Cry1F’s marketing language, and the Handy Bt Trait notes what regions growers should expect to use non-Bt controls for this pest.The Handy Bt Trait table will be updated soon with the confirmed corn borer resistance to Cry1F, DiFonzo said. In the meantime, entomologists are urging growers to add the pest to their scouting regimen once again and notify university Extension offices if they find unexpected damage.“We need to get back in touch with the corn borer,” DiFonzo said.For more information on the discovery of European corn borer resistance to Cry1F in Nova Scotia, see this article from the Canadian Corn Pest Coalition: https://www.cornpest.ca/….See also this article from Baute: http://fieldcropnews.com/….Read more from a U.S. perspective on the discovery from DiFonzo: https://www.canr.msu.edu/….Emily Unglesbee can be reached at Emily.unglesbee@dtn.comFollow her on Twitter @Emily_Unglesbee(PS/AG)© Copyright 2019 DTN/The Progressive Farmer.

Devs Hack iPhone API for True Augmented Reality

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#NYT#Real-Time Web#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting An international team of computer scientists has created software that lets anyone perform on-the-fly analysis of live streaming video on the iPhone. Used alongside existing methods of displaying data on top of the camera’s view, this new functionality signals a fundamental change in the kinds of Augmented Reality (AR) that iPhone developers can create. Existing AR apps, like Yelp, Layar, Wikitude and others display data on top of a camera’s view but don’t actually analyze what the camera sees. This new development changes that.The iPhone has a private API for analysis of live-streaming video but developers’ requests that it be made accessible haven’t been granted by Apple. The new software opening up access to that API was made freely available to anyone this morning by the team that built it.The Visual Media Lab at Ben Gurion University in collaboration with HIT Lab NZ wrote the code in question and unveiled it along with video demonstrations at the AR-specialist blog Games Alfresco today. The unveiling comes just days before the International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality in Orlando, Florida.In a demonstration video the team showed how software built on top of the now-exposed API could look at a 2D image drawn on paper and render the image in 3D. Then the 3D rendering is subjected to a physics simulation. This is of course just one use-case. Video AR-enabled software could do almost anything in direct response to the actual images seen through the iPhone’s camera view, in real time. Image processing locally will be easier and faster than comparison with a large number of related images, something that would likely require some connection to the cloud, but these are early days.GamesAlfresco author Ori Inbar calls this the dawn of an era of “user-generated Augmented Reality.”For the first time ever, the core code necessary for real augmented reality (“real” here means precise alignment of graphics overlaid on real life objects) on iPhone 3.0 is available to the publicHow will Apple respond? That’s a big question; the company has had an ambivalent relationship with the emerging field of Augmented Reality so far and exercises infamously obtuse control over applications distributed through its app store.For now the code is being distributed for its creators by Ori Inbar, whose email address to request it is available at the conclusion of his coverage on GamesAlfresco.The possibilities here are huge. While location-based AR is clumsy at best so far, due to the imprecise nature of GPS and mapping data, these kinds of object-centric AR tied to the actual viewed world open up a whole new world of potential developments. Let’s see what you’ve got, AR devs of the world!

10 Ways Social Media Will Change in 2011

first_imgWith more than 550 million people on Facebook, 65 million tweets posted on Twitter each day, and 2 billion video views each day on YouTube?, social media has become an integral part of our connected lives. But this is just the beginning.For the past two years, I have been forecasting the evolution social media will undergo. Key trends for 2010 included social media integration across applications and devices, lowered technological barriers, mobile pervasiveness and social media ROI as a focus. It is safe to say that these trends indeed became reality and I expect these to continue and materialize in new solutions, applications and case studies in the year ahead.2011 will also be marked by new developments that will shape the very fabric of our behavior, culture and identity. These developments will challenge us to consider important questions about the future of our experience as connected people and consumers. Here are key trends to watch in the coming year:1. Social media will be supersizedGuest author Ravit Lichtenberg, founder and chief strategist at Ustrategy – a boutique consultancy specializing in helping companies excel in the socio-digital age. Ravit authors a blog at www.ravitlichtenberg.com and is on Twitter @ravit_ustrategy.Following the success of various social media SaaS vendors and application providers, and fueled by ?Apple envy,? in 2011 we will see a surge of service providers bundling social networks, engagement widgets, video, mobile capabilities, cloud services and analytics, with their own unique services and proprietary capabilities. Ad agencies, for example, will offer bundles that include layers of creative strategy, campaign management and advertising deals all handled through a central dashboard; telecommunications companies will offer video tools for businesses and consumers with greater bandwidth, storage and syndication; learning management systems (LMS) integrators will add engagement, archiving, training and collaboration tools for a deeper and more engaging academic experience. By the end of the year, using today?s à la cart solutions will seem as efficient as buying a pocket knife with only a bottle opener in it.2. Companies will integrate social feedback into their decision making processRead Ravit’s Previous Forecasts10 Ways Social Media Will Change in 200910 Ways Social Media Will Change in 2010 Tags:#Features#Trends#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts ravit lichtenberg from ustrate 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market In 2011 we will see a growing number of companies finally go beyond using social channels merely for building awareness and providing support. As ?social thinkers,? these companies will use the social engine to inform strategic decisions, and execute on the organization?’s objectives, marketing plans, product roadmaps and more. ?It?s not just about technology, it?s about a fundamental shift into a new age of leadership with new type of executives who behave and operate in new ways,? said Marc Benioff, Salesforce.com chairman and CEO. Expect to see a rise in companies who, by end of year, will be recognized for socially-informed innovation, customer focus and work environment, ?much like Zappos and Amazon were a few years back.3. Mobile will become our gateway to the world2010 marked the year in which infrastructure, technology and design finally intersected in the mobile space. For the first time, sales of smartphones outpaced sales of desktops and laptops, iPhone and iPad applications were downloaded more than 7 billion times and research shows e-mail access is now on the rise on the iPhone while declining on the computer.With the foundation in place, in the coming year we will witness the scales tip: Mobile device users will interact with content, companies and the Web more on their phones and iPads than on their computers, and IT and service providers will create solutions that are defined by our mobile consumption and use behaviors. ?The highway has been there but until now we needed a special car to get us to our destination, so the average pedestrian was not going to get there. Now that technology barriers have been lowered, mobile will become an extension of who we are,? said Philippe Suchet, CEO of MyShopanion, and the recipient of the Web2.0? Summit 2010 award for most innovative startup in the mobile shopping category.From social shopping on the go, to easy paperless transactions and check-ins, to watching (and creating) videos with friends abroad, to in-class learning and collaboration, to managing our health real-time – prepare for an explosion of connected experiences across all points of interactions between people and people, people and companies, and people and information in the cloud.Photo by LotusHead4. Video will be everywhereWith plummeting video delivery costs and highly accessible and flexible video management platforms (like Brightcove, Ooyala, and the open-source platform Kaltura*), custom-use of video by enterprises online, on mobile devices, and across screens is on the rise across all sectors.Consumer? engagement with video will also continue to rise. In October alone, 5.4 billion videos were viewed – 2 billion of these on Facebook. ?People today can shoot and share HD videos from their phone. The user experience is getting to the same level as broadcast or professional media from an image quality standpoint. Image acquisition is entirely changing content production,? said Brett Leonard, renowned writer and director and pioneer of ?frag? technology in the movie industry.When it comes to ROI, it seems that companies want to cook gourmet risotto but most are still busy washing the rice: Despite 2010 being a year filled with ROI discussions and some strong case studies, Forrester research shows that most companies still have no clue how to meaningfully measure ROI.In the coming year, gaps in our video experience will be filled with the integration of filtering, tagging, editing and locating tools into each and every video feed. Both companies and consumers will increasingly rely on video to provide information and behavioral cues that are not otherwise present in texts, tweets and status updates, making video a critical component of the value chain for its impact on shaping people?s’ perception about companies and about each other.5. The next big Online Social Network will not be a network at allSocial networks have transformed human access capabilities much like modern transportation and the telephone did over 150 years ago. But they are also changing the very structure of our relationships? – flattening our naturally varying levels of intimacy in real life.In the coming year we will see the rise of dynamic, engaging, easy-to-use community platforms and applications like Diaspora, Path and Looppa* that will better mimic and facilitate the innate way people seek to manage relationships. ?People today look for more personalized, authentic, private information (where we make) a ?social contract? around a topic or context that is beyond the reach of search engine results and Facebook crowds,? said Dave Blakely, director of technology strategy at IDEO.For consumers, this means the ability to create smaller, more intimate, context-specific communities using their existing social graph and livestreams. For companies, this means the ability to facilitate a custom-branded, dynamic and engaging experience on their online properties in ways not possible on Facebook. ?Every company should think of itself as a media company,? said Tom Foremski, journalist and thought-leader.As they become more social, on their own turfs, companies will once again own their customer relationships and brand in a whole new way, ?ultimately building greater community value for both the company and its customers.6. ROI will be redefinedWhen it comes to ROI, it seems that companies want to cook gourmet risotto but most are still busy washing the rice: Despite 2010 being a year filled with ROI discussions and some strong case studies, Forrester research shows that most companies still have no clue how to meaningfully measure ROI.As brands move this year from being on social media to using the social media ecosystem, ROI metrics will finally evolve beyond counting ?likes? and comments. Aligning with actionable business objectives and their corresponding metrics will be critical to being able to demonstrate repeatable contribution to the bottom line. Companies who hire social media strategists with proven marketing analytics background and business strategy experience will have the upper hand and will place first in the race to cracking the ROI code.7. Psychology is shiftingUntil now, human psychology has been regarded slow to change. In the coming year we will begin to see evidence that we are, in fact, witnessing a growing psychological plasticity.?We have changed the importance of time, geography, age? and the assumption of how the world works. We have new levels of cognitive flexibility, which is creating a new way of thinking about the world and about ourselves,? said Dr. Pamela Rutledge, director of the Media Psychology Research Center and co-founder of A Think Lab.Once feeling powerless to fight against personal and cultural injustices, today people know they have the power to voice their grievances, the tools to bring about change and the ability to take control of their experiences.As the constructs of relationships, privacy and our ability to influence others evolve, we will also face important questions: How do we respond to the changing definition of relationships? How does the elimination of behavioral cues, only available face-to-face, impact our ability to connect? How does our need for emotional balance get addressed in the face of constant change?In the coming year, companies wishing to succeed should already start to set practices and create a charter to understand the intersection between technology and psychology. Focusing on behaviors is no longer sufficient.8. Citizen activism brings back purpose and powerWith the power made possible by social technologies to connect, inform and mobilize, we will see a surge in self-organized and managed citizen activism. ?Value will come from being able to facilitate groups as a human infrastructure?, not from technology,? says Andrea Saveri, a thought-leader and researcher at the intersection of foresight and strategy.Wikipedia and Mozilla FireFox are early and ongoing examples of the value of the connected human infrastructure; many more, including Causecast, and OpenIDEO, as well as lesser known projects like It Gets Better will light up the grid. By the end of the year we may each join a group of people we have never met in order to take part in bringing about change in completely new ways.9. Social business intelligence will heat up and so will privacyAs we become ever more connected, and rely on giants like Apple and Google to funnel our most personal information, the field of social business intelligence, and with it, our privacy, will move to the spotlight. Wikileak?s‘ eruption on the social media waves and Do Not Track are just previews. Every company now looks to tap into the boundless user data being collected in the cloud. While personalized, targeted experience can be extremely valuable in helping companies and consumers cut through the clutter, the line between perceived use and abuse can be thin at times, as data mining and targeted ad delivery pioneer RapLeaf saw in past months.In the year ahead we will witness (and be part of) major data virtualization initiatives designed to map our activities, preferences and choices. Mechanisms designed to triangulate our mobile, online and physical information will yield more accurate information than our Social Security numbers can. We will see fierce regulation battles and hear about companies who use our data to test boundaries? and our trust. When done, Tom Cruise?’s shopping scene in Minority Report will seem as sophisticated as scenes from Time Tunnel in the 1970?s.10. The role of the social media strategist will be changingThe glory days when social media strategists rose to stardom overnight (and too often, with little relevant experience) are finally over. Social media roles today focus on tangible, results-driven capabilities within the organizational structure and processes. Hiring managers are more informed and better connected, making it easier to separate the wheat from the chaff.In 2011, social media strategists will need to contend with much more actionable, and often mundane, tasks such as selecting and piloting new tools, integrating social widgets and analytics, helping to educate the organization, and integrating social-based thinking into the organization?’s process and culture. Process design, stakeholder management, strategic planning, and the ability to manage large projects within complex environments will all be required.Strategists looking to remain inspired and work at the cutting edge will have to look outside today’?s leading corporations. Some of the most interesting social media work will come from new media digital agencies, smaller innovative companies, international companies who are just entering the field and late-to-adopt sectors such as health, finance and insurance.In the year ahead we will see more of the same: more users on Facebook, more videos, more social media widgets, more tools, more devices, more applications. But it will also be a year of important accomplishments and fundamental shifts in our thinking, behavior and psychology. As social media and social technologies integrate deeper into our daily lives and across vast audiences, our areas of focus will begin to transform.Companies will begin to overhaul their internal structures and decision-making processes even if at a fairly superficial levels at first; consumers will seek to make sense of their evolving relationships, always-on connectedness, and to redefine value and meaning.As we finally surface from social media stimulus overload, the questions we will ask in the coming year should not be about technology but about what it enables, what it jeopardizes and about how we, as the connected collective, want to shape the years to come.(Disclaimer: Companies marked with * are Ustrategy clients.)

Video Tutorial: How to Use Premiere’s New Freeform View

first_imgView and organize assets while simultaneously storyboarding a sequence in Premiere Pro — with Adobe’s new fabulous Freeform feature.Adobe Premiere’s Project panel received a major upgrade in the latest release of Creative Cloud (Spring 2019). With the new Freeform feature, users can now view and organize assets in a uniquely visual way. Whether you want to simply group assets categorically by metadata, or create a complex storyboard, this new tool is here to help. You’ll find the Freeform button at the bottom left-hand side of the Project panel, next to the Icon and List view buttons. Let’s take a closer look at how it works. Stay OrganizedAs the name implies, you can now move clips around freely in the Project panel. Unlike Icon view, your clips won’t automatically snap into a grid placement. You can, however, quickly align assets via a simple Right-Click > Align to Grid. Freeform also allows you to stack clips on top of each other to group them together. This can be very useful when you’re organizing assets, and it can be a substitute for bins. To quickly cycle between stacked clips, simply hover your cursor over an asset, or use the arrow keys. In addition to the slider bar at the bottom, you can now right-click on a clip and change its size, independent of other clips. Use this to signify the importance of key shots or sequences. You can also display two lines of metadata information underneath a thumbnail. To specify which metadata you’d like to show, go to Panel Menu > Freeform View Options. Storyboard Your ProjectOne of the interesting features of the Freeform layout is that you can use it to storyboard a sequence. Simply use the size adjustments, and drag and drop your clips into a sequence. As in Icon view, you can use the J, K, and L keys to play back, and even set In and Out points. For an easier storyboarding experience, customize the Poster Frame of each clip. Once you have your In and Out points for each shot, grab and drag everything into your sequence. Now you have a rough cut and are ready to do some fine-tuning in the Timeline panel. Sorry, (Source Monitor, it’s time to pack your things. Security will escort you out.)Save Your LayoutFor a streamlined workflow, I can save custom Freeform layouts. In this example, I’ll create one for Grouping and one for Storyboarding. For this, simply right-click in the Project Panel, and select Save as New Layout. Now I can quickly jump between these views, and even create multiple storyboards. Video is a visual medium, so why not organize your footage that way?Looking for more video tutorials?

You Sell from In Front

first_imgIt’s difficult to play the game of sales from behind.It’s difficult to play from behind when your buyer has already entered the buying cycle. Once they’ve decided that they’re dissatisfied, that they need to change, and have started evaluating options, you’re already working from behind. If you think you can wait for your dream client to decide they need something before you start engaging them, you’re incorrect.It’s difficult to play from behind your competitors, too. Once they’ve managed to find their way into your dream client company and made connections, you’re already behind in relationship building. If you think you can play catch up after your competitors have the place wired, you’re going to learn just how difficult it can be to displace someone with a deep relationship. Selling is built on relationships of value. You need to have built relationships before you really need them.It’s difficult to play from behind when it comes to pricing. Once you’re at the end of your sales process and begin negotiating, it’s too late to start trying to define the value you create. To successfully maintain your pricing and your margins, you needed to build the value and gain agreement on what it’s worth to your client early in the sales process. The only way you can push back and reiterate the value you create is if you’ve already gained that agreement earlier. You sharpen your value creation, or you sharpen your pencil.Selling is a game that’s best played from in front. You work in front of opportunities to help your dream client understand and their needs—and the eventual solution. You work in front of opportunities to create the relationships you need up and down your client’s organizational chart. You work in front of pricing by gaining agreement on the value you create and what it’s worth to your dream client before you ever get to a negotiation.QuestionsHow do you play the game of sales from in front?How do you fall behind?What are the challenges of trying to catch up with your dream client when they’re deep into their buying cycle?What do you do to catch up with your competitors when they’ve built strong relationships?When is the right time to start justifying your price as it relates to the value you create?

(AP Photo/John Locher, File)LOS ANGELES— The UFC has stripped its light heavyweight title from Jon Jones for a third time and reinstated Daniel Cormier as the 205-pound champion after Jones’ latest failed doping test.The mixed martial arts promotion announced its decision Wednesday after the California State Athletic Commission changed the result of Jones’ victory over Cormier on July 29 to a no-contest.ADVERTISEMENT Jones has a lengthy history of misbehavior. After avoiding serious punishment in previous incidents involving cocaine use and a drunk-driving conviction, he was stripped of his title in 2015 after his involvement in a hit-and-run accident that left a pregnant woman with a broken arm.He returned to the octagon several months later and reclaimed an interim title while Cormier was injured, but Jones’ belt was stripped again in November 2016, four months after he was pulled from a rematch with Cormier at UFC 200 for failing a pre-fight doping test.Jones served a one-year suspension before returning in July, pronouncing himself wiser and more mature.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES MOST READ Nonong Araneta re-elected as PFF president E.T. returns to earth, reunites with grown-up Elliott in new ad  LOOK: Loisa Andalio, Ronnie Alonte unwind in Amanpulo for 3rd anniversary Read Next BSP sees higher prices in November, but expects stronger peso, low rice costs to put up fight Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMCcenter_img Cormier lost the belt to Jones in a third-round stoppage at UFC 214 in Anaheim, California.

SMC still supports Gilas five

first_imgPhoto by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netThe national basketball program can heave a sigh of relief. The current impasse in the PBA won’t affect Gilas Pilipinas’ preparation for the Fiba Asia World Cup qualifier.The five-team half of the two factions split over the stint of Chito Narvasa as league commissioner issued a statement saying the bloc will “continue to make available its players to the Philippine team that is preparing for the Fiba Asia World Cup qualifier and other league functions.”ADVERTISEMENT Japan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101 League’s interest in mindThe board needs a three-fourths majority to oust Narvasa, putting the seven-team bloc a governor short of replacing the commissioner. But Narvasa needs the same number of votes to stay on as commissioner when the board meets in Los Angeles next week—thus the stalemate, which had the MVP group appointing long-time manager of operations and current deputy commissioner Rickie Santos as officer-in-charge.“They (both parties) agreed that it is the PBA that is being hurt,” Marcial went on.The board flies to Los Angeles in the United States on Nov. 10.“With the best interest of the league in mind, we have come to an agreement to reach out to the other members of the board to resolve this impasse as a collegial body, not as individuals, to maintain the integrity of the PBA (Philippine Basketball Association) and protect the interest of fans nationwide,” the five-team group’s statement said. Read Next The five teams also moved to broker a truce between the two factions, imploring members of the board of governors to refrain from making statements until a settlement has been reached.The five-team group assigned PBA media bureau chief Willie Marcial to open talks with the seven-team faction headed by Manny V. Pangilinan squads TNT, Meralco and NLEX.“They all agreed to resolve this as quietly as possible,” Marcial told the Inquirer after talking to members of the seven-team group, which also includes Phoenix Petroleum, Blackwater, Rain or Shine and Alaska.A major fissure cracked the board after the MVP-led bloc sought to terminate the services of Narvasa in a meeting early Thursday morning.
