    first_imgFaculty traditionally teach graduate studentsFor more than a century, the UGA Griffin campus has housedmembers of the UGA College of Agricultural and EnvironmentalSciences research faculty.”Griffin campus faculty have traditionally taught undergraduateclasses,” Arkin said. “Over the years, many Griffin faculty havetraveled to Athens to teach. And in some cases (they) providedinstruction from Griffin to Athens via distance education.Griffin campus faculty also engage in graduate education formasters and Ph.D. students, many of whom do all or part of theirresearch here in Griffin.”The UGA Griffin campus degrees are designed to work inpartnership with area two-year colleges. Students must have 60hours of transferable college credit before enrolling in thedegree programs. Area high school students expressed interestJohnson polled students at the two largest high schools inGriffin and Spalding County, too. At Spalding High, 71 percentshowed an interest in getting a UGA undergraduate degree inGriffin. At Griffin High, 68 percent were interested. Askedspecifically about the new degrees, 36 percent of Spaldingstudents and 46 percent of Griffin students found them appealing.In the past, students pursuing bachelor’s degrees in theGriffin-Spalding County area have had to travel to Clayton orBibb County, Arkin said.”Offering UGA undergraduate degree programs on the Griffin campusis a major step in making higher education ever more accessibleto students,” he said.”The University of Georgia Griffin campus undergraduate degreeprograms are intended to offer convenience and accessibility,” hesaid, “for students who cannot go to Athens for their degreesbecause of jobs, family, or other commitments.”The new majors require students to meet UGA’s transferringstudent requirements of at least 60 hours of credit and at leasta 2.5 grade point average. Once accepted, students can attendclasses in Griffin and still be an official UGA student.”After they meet all the university standards, our Griffinstudents will become bona fide, I.D.-carrying UGA students,”Johnson said.UGA will offer the first six upper-level Griffin campus coursesthis fall from 8 a.m. until noon on weekdays.

No reaction so far, touch wood.“When we get started, it looks like we can have a full squad to choose from.”England international Rashford had been out with a back injury since January while France’s Pogba had missed most of the season with a foot problem.Former Watford striker Ighalo was brought in as cover for Rashford on transfer deadline day in January and has impressed by scoring four goals in eight appearances.Solskjaer added: “The loan deal went to the end of May now, so obviously he’s supposed to be going back.“We’re in dialogue and hopefully [he can stay]. They’ve been great towards us, his club, and allow him to play for his dream club.“It’s been been a dream for him and hopefully he can finish off what he started, maybe with a trophy or two.“Their league is going to start soon so we are just waiting to see.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Manchester United are “in dialogue” with Shanghai Shenhua to extend the loan deal of striker Odion Ighalo, says manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.Ighalo, 30, joined United in January and will return to China on 31 May unless an agreement can be reached to keep him until the end of the season.“At the moment nothing’s been agreed yet,” Solskjaer told MUTV.last_img read more

  • Cutting costs while protecting profits

    first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest There is no doubt that corn and soybean farmers are taking a closer look at inputs and production budgets this year as margins get slimmer. The key to profitable farms is to maximize production while minimizing inputs — a simple theory, but a complex set of decisions.“Don’t pick one part of your operation and completely gut it. Whether it is seed, fertility or chemistry or whatever you are working with, the worst thing you can do is completely take out your spending on one thing,” said Justin Petrosino, with Stewart Seeds. “You can cut some fertility on some of your highest fertility fields that have those reservoirs built up. Or you can go with a cheaper hybrid as long as there is the yield potential, but be aware of what problems might arise by using that hybrid that is a little cheaper.”As parts of the operation are tweaked to save money, other parts of the farm may see an increase in costs to compensate.“Disease management, for example, is about keeping a balance across all of the things you are doing on the farm. If you are going with cutting the rotation or cutting tillage, you might spend more on chemistry. If you use a cheaper hybrid you might spend a lot more on fungicide at tassel. It is about looking at the balance of things you are trying to accomplish and keeping them on an even keel,” Petrosino said. “What you can look at taking out of your lineup really depends on each farm. There are some farms with P and K levels through the roof and we maybe can draw down some of those reserves. There are certain hybrids that may cost less but can have trouble with gray leaf spot. You can take more risk if the field is not in a river bottom or corn on corn. Cutting costs is a field-by-field scenario and not trying to make a cut across the whole farm.”Using hybrids and varieties with fewer, or no, traits can also help to save money.“We are definitely seeing folks back off of traits. We are seeing an uptick in conventional corn and we are seeing a slight increase in Roundup traits. A lot of the market is falling into that above ground protection with Roundup,” he said. “We all bought into rootworm protection because we did have a rootworm problem in Ohio, but since 2008 that first year variant has kind of disappeared. If you are on corn on corn ground or in a field with a history of rootworm pressure, we are still looking at the rootworm protection. When you are looking at that average acre we are seeing a lot of guys make that move to Double PRO or a corn product without rootworm protection. Most guys are starting to back off traits a little but not completely.”last_img read more

  • OpSource Launches an Enterprise Cloud on Amazon’s Coattails

    first_img3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now steven walling Tags:#enterprise#Products Related Posts Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo…center_img Just days after Amazon launched its Virtual Private Cloud to try and attract enterprises to EC2, OpSource has announced what it’s calling “the first true enterprise cloud.” OpSource is essentially offering a similar “hybrid cloud” operation that allows customers to access resources in the cloud over a secure VPN connection. IT can decide just how accessible their instances are and can apply the same type of firewalls and other security policies that they would in a datacenter. “Companies want to take advantage of the Cloud’s pay-only-for-what-you-consume and collaborative nature but they have been held back by the lack of security, performance and control,” said OpSource CEO Treb Ryan. The OpSource cloud aims to make up for that lack of security by translating traditional IT practices to the cloud. There will also be an SLA backed up by 24-hour support, which is basically standard if you want to be taken seriously in the enterprise space. Though OpSource will be hard pressed to seriously compete with Amazon’s enterprise cloud offering, the two companies do agree on one key fact. Both OpSource and Amazon are snubbing the movement towards the private cloud, where cloud-like architecture is moved into a completely separate enterprise environment. This short burst of announcements could signal a trend towards cloud computing, compromising just enough to meet the needs of enterprise IT and bring hold-outs into the fold.The one significant difference between the OpSource release and Amazon VPC is that the former supports a multi-tier architecture. The company is going to have to rely on speedy innovation and the addition of more features like that if it wants to capture significant market share from the EC2 juggernaut. The product will be fully launched at VMWorld next week and will leave private beta in early October. For a closer look now, you’ll need to apply here for the private beta.

  • Google+ ‘Ghost Town’ Now Has Half A Billion Members

    first_imgNot A Ghost Town AnymoreThe bigger news, however, is that Google+ now has 500 million members, 135 million of whom are active users of Google+ itself, while 235 million are considered “active” by virtue of interacting with Google+ from other Google sites. That total number of 500 million is up from 400 million only three months ago.Sure, Google+ is still smaller than Facebook, which has more than 1 billion active members. But it is certainly not a “ghost town,” and it certainly is not dead. In the early days Google+ was mostly popular with Silicon Valley techies, but little by little, “normals” seem to be migrating onto Google+.Google+ has some advantages. For one thing, you have more control over your experience. And your feed isn’t cluttered with ads. In general, Google+ feels like a cleaner, nicer place than Facebook, which has never been very attractive and is starting to look old and tired.How Facebook Is Helping GoogleBut Facebook has a bigger problem, which is that even its most avid users tend to hate the company itself and to view Facebook as an outfit that is less interested in helping users than in wringing money out of them by finding new ways to trick and exploit them.Over the past few years there have been a string of scandals over Facebook’s ever-changing privacy policies. More recently, Facebook made a change in its algorithm that cut back on “reach” and left brands feeling betrayed and led to Mark Cuban saying he would start focusing his attention on other social networks.Then came the announcement (on the night before Thanksgiving) that Facebook wants to do away with a policy that allows users to vote about changes in Facebook’s service, and now users have been asked to vote on whether they should be able to vote.None of these things is, in isolation, a big deal. But over time an unflattering image of Facebook has begun to emerge.Google Plays A Patient GameThe official line from Google has always been that Google+ doesn’t really compete with Facebook.And for the most part the Googlers have refused to criticize Facebook, even when Facebook was busted trying to run a nasty smear campaign against Google.Instead, Google has stuck to building out its service. The new Communities feature isn’t an earth-shattering event, but it’s another important step forward.The people running Google+ have been mocked, laughed at, criticized and accused of exaggerating usage numbers. They’ve been told, repeatedly, that they have no hope of success and should just give up. But Google+ just keeps on growing. And getting better. Now it has 500 million members, up 25% from just three months ago. At some point the pundits may have to declare this a success. Related Posts Tags:#Facebook#Google#social Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Say this for the people running Google+ — they know how to take a punch and keep going. In the 18 months since Google launched its social service the engineers and marketers behind Google+ have suffered the slings and arrows of some pretty negative punditry.Farhad Manjoo of Slate waited five whole months to declare that “Google+ Is Dead.”Bloomberg Businessweek called Google+ a “ghost town.” The Wall Street Journal accused Google of exaggerating its usage statistics.Privately the Googlers were steamed, but in public they stayed quiet and just kept chugging along, adding new features and functionality.And today Google announced a pretty huge milestone – its service now has half a billion members. CommunitiesThe membership news was included in an announcement of a new feature called Communities, which lets people create spaces where they can connect with others who share their interest in any subject – cooking, skiing, travel, whatever.Google+ users have already been using the service to create communities around particular interests like music or photography, but now “we’re now making it dramatically easier” for people to do that, says Google Vice President Bradley Horowitz. “This is a significant leap forward for our users,” he says.Anyone can start a community. There are four different kinds. Two are public, two are private. A moderator can create multiple “topics” within a community. A community devoted to food might have a topic devoted to vegetarian cooking, another where people recommend restaurants and another where people can share recipes.Here’s how it works: Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… dan lyons The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videoslast_img read more

  • Nerd Alert: Turn Your Browser Into A Notepad

    first_img7 Types of Video that will Make a Massive Impac… Tags:#Browsers jon mitchell Okay, forgive me, but I have to nerd out on you for a second. I have just learned that you can turn any modern browser window into a text notepad, and you can save the contents. It even works on mobile browsers.Type this into your browser’s location bar:data:text/html, Hit enter, then click on the blank page below. Now type away. And on a desktop browser, if you save the page, you’ll get an HTML file that will open right back up in your browser with the text you had written.How Does It Work?The reason this works is laid out in a post by Jose Jesus Perez Aguinaga on Coderwall. It uses the Data URI format to tell the browser to make a simple HTML page that contains the new HTML5 element “contenteditable.” It’s pretty basic stuff, unless you aren’t using a modern browser, but I sure hope you are by now.Aguinaga explains that he uses it as a scratch pad since he lives in the browser, and he doesn’t want text editor windows cluttering up his workspace.I can relate to that. I wouldn’t use it for writing a blog post, but I’d certainly use it for a tab of notes on the contents of the browser tab next to it. I regularly have browser windows with 10 or 12 tabs of stuff for an article I’m writing, and I can use this trick to keep my notes on each item right there next to it. It isn’t pretty, but it works.I’ve entered the magic words as a snippet in TextExpander by Smile. So whenever I type “tttype,” my Mac or TextExpander-enabled mobile apps will spit out the real thing.That’s pretty neat, but the wizards in the comments section below Aguinaga’s post have figured out even more powerful tweaks, including making it into a bookmark.I learned this via Glenn Fleishman, who learned about it via Tom Standage.
