WATCH US LIVE Kole Calhoun homered and had a two-run double to lead Arizona’s 18-hit outburst, and the Diamondbacks beat the Colorado Rockies 12-8 on Monday night.David Peralta and Ketel Marte got four hits each for Arizona, which finished with 13 singles.Alex Young (1-0) worked two innings of relief for the win. Archie Bradley entered in the ninth with the bases loaded and allowed just one run, earning his fourth save.The teams combined for 15 runs and 21 hits through five innings at Coors Field, chasing both starters before the end of the fourth.“This is a great place to hit. I think that’s not a secret. It feels like it’s going to be a slugfest no matter what,” said Calhoun, who hit his home run to the opposite field. “It’s nice to see everybody keep swinging it and keep putting up crooked numbers.”Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon continued his torrid start with four singles to extend his hitting streak to 14 games. He has 10 multi-hit games in that stretch, including the last five to raise his batting average to .484, tops in the majors.“It’s so early into this thing, you can’t weigh things unless you’re Charlie Blackmon, who’s got 30 hits when some guys don’t have 30 at-bats,” Calhoun said.Blackmon has 12 hits in his last 15 at-bats.“He’s just unbelievable. He’s probably the best hitter I’ve ever played with,” said teammate Nolan Arenado, who also had four hits. “These guys are tough lefties and for Charlie to have the at-bats that he has, it’s fun to watch. The zone you dream of is what he’s in right now. I’m trying to learn something from him.”Trevor Story and Chris Owings homered for Colorado.Calhoun set the tone with a leadoff homer against Jon Gray (0-2) and added a two-run double in a three-run seventh that gave Arizona a four-run lead. The Diamondbacks had three innings in which they scored three runs, and they never trailed.Colorado stayed close by answering every rally until the seventh. The Rockies scored a run in the first, two in the third and three in the fourth to chase starter Robbie Ray, who lasted just 3 2/3 innings.“You can’t take anything for granted with this ballpark,” Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. “With the way the ball jets out of here, you’ve got to be extremely careful how you manage the lineup and I thought our bullpen did a tremendous job.”Owings’ second home run of the season — against his former team — cut the lead to 8-7 in the fifth. Marte’s single in the ninth gave Arizona a five-run cushion.TRAINER’S ROOMDiamondbacks: Placed LHP Madison Bumgarner on the 10-day injured list with a mid-back strain. Bumgarner left Sunday’s game at San Diego after two innings due to back spasms.Rockies: RHP Wade Davis (right shoulder strain) still hasn’t started throwing, manager Bud Black said. Davis has been on the 10-day IL since Aug. 1. Black said Davis and RHP Chi Chi Gonzalez (right biceps tendinitis) are continuing to get treatment.LIKE OLD TIMESColorado’s starting staff was a strength when the team went to the postseason in 2018. Last year things went sideways, especially for lefty Kyle Freeland, who endured a 3-11 campaign after finishing fourth in NL Cy Young Award voting the year before.The starters are back to being a strength for the Rockies, but it’s not a surprise to Black.“Last year was tough for starters and relievers,” Black said. “Their personal expectation was they would bounce back, and that was my expectation. I’ve seen them pitch well and make adjustments.”UP NEXTThe Diamondbacks send RHP Zac Gallen (0-0, 2.81 ERA) to the mound against Freeland (2-0, 2.41) in the middle game of the series Tuesday night.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Today’s report sent shock waves to the bear. Both corn and soybean stocks were bullish and below the average trade estimate. Two weeks ago the bears thought they were in control and more downside ahead. But, Mother Nature again proved who is boss. This was a market that seemed dead two weeks ago. It just goes to show how quickly things can change. Corn stocks were 108 million bushels below expected, soybean stocks 45 million bushels below expected.Corn acres were estimated at 88.897 million acres, and below trade estimates of 89.292 million acres. Soybean acres were estimated at 85.139 million acres, with the trade estimate at 85.17 million acresShortly after the report came out, a customer asked what the grain limits currently are. Corn is 30 cents, soybeans 70 cents, with wheat at 40 cents.Just prior to the report corn and soybeans were down one cent, with wheat down four cents. At 12:40 corn is up 22 cents, soybeans up 44 cents, and wheat is up 13 cents. We have heard there was a tremendous amount of old corn that was sold last week. One report said that some grain facilities had their biggest day of buying old corn since last fall’s harvest. Other reports indicated that last week was a record volume in buying grain from producers. It is estimated that the U.S. farmer at this date has sold 80% of 2014 corn and 90% of 2014 soybeans.This report day has captured plenty of attention the past two weeks. Much has been made about soybean acres not getting planted across the Midwest. Three weeks ago the states of Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska were the states with the biggest amount of soybeans yet to plant. Fast forward to today, there are still five million acres of soybeans not planted in the US. Missouri is by far the biggest state of those four detailed above. Traders are looking for soybean acres to be 85.2 million acres, up from the March intentions at 84.6 million acres. The market will quickly dismiss the acres numbers for soybeans, especially given the weather of the past three weeks. The USDA survey was done late May and early June, before all of the prolonged and frequent rains took place. USDA will not attempt to adjust those numbers with this report today. It is very likely that soybean acres will again have a survey, most likely for the August 12 USDA supply and demand report. However, do not look for all U.S. acres to have another survey done. Reports we hear are suggesting that the wettest three states would be done for the resurvey. Nothing is official yet, but it would seem those states would be Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana.June 1st soybean stocks came in at 625 million bushels, 45 million bushels below the average trade estimate. The lower than expected number was bullish and a surprise to the market. It adds validity to ideas that the 2014 soybean production may have been estimated too high. Soybean stocks as of June 1 were the most watched number going into the report. Traders estimated that number would be 670 million bushels. The range a week ago from the low estimate to the high estimate was 170 million bushels. That suggested lots of price volatility. Last night that range was down to 103 million bushels.Corn stocks came in at 4.447 billion bushels, 108 million bushels below trade estimates. Corn is once again coming to life. With all of the bird flu concerns the past several months, many had thought that corn demand would be waning, and that could push corn stocks above trade estimates. That did not happen.Last night’s weekly crop condition report had both corn and soybean good and excellent totals declining from the previous week. The corn good and excellent totals were 68%, down from last week’s 71%.Wheat has seen a huge rally this past week, up about 80 cents. Harvest has begun in central and southern Ohio. Yields are ranging from high 60’s to nearly 90 bushels per acre. The forecast has rain chances for the next week. The northern half has yet to get into wheat fields in a big way. We heard Williams county had six inches of rain. It might be two weeks before harvest is fully underway if the rains take place this week. We are hearing central Ohio grain facilities quickly moving to two wheat discount schedules, one for milling quality, the other for feed quality.The acres numbers are quickly being dismissed. Weather returns to be the dominant feature. Hang on, we are in a full blown weather market. And, a wet weather one at that.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Ohio Farmers Union added hemp cultivation and specific recommendations for Lake Erie water quality woes in its 2019 statement of public policy proposals.Adopted at its recent state convention in Lima, OFU’s “Special Orders of Business” outline the organization’s legislative and executive branch priorities on both the state and national level for the year.Two topics new on OFU’s slate this year are industrial hemp production in Ohio and a call for state political leaders to lessen the tax burden on Ohio’s woodlands.“While we are grateful for the recent changes to the CAUV formula, there still exists issues with some outlandish tax assessments on woodlands around the state. Woodlands provide immense environmental benefits and we’ll be talking to state leaders this year about tweaks to their valuation for tax purposes,” said Joe Logan, OFU president. “With harmful algal blooms and other water quality issues, we need to make sure we don’t negatively incentivize farmers and rural landowners regarding conservation.”Logan is also optimistic about the prospects for industrial hemp production in Ohio. Since the 2018 Farm Bill lifted the federal prohibition on the cultivation of industrial hemp, Logan said he’s been contacted by a growing number of farmers and even a Texas state ag official looking for information on what Ohio’s approach will be to the crop.“The ball is in the state of Ohio’s court — and I know that officials at the Ohio Dept. of Agriculture are aware that there’s a growing number of farmers who may wish to diversify by adding hemp to their crop rotation,” Logan said. “The Ohio Farmers Union supports a state hemp program, but only in the event that it’s designed to work and be available to all farmers in all parts of the state.”Logan said hemp is a unique and versatile crop for the fiber to the oil derived from the plant. He does sound a note of caution however regarding the market outlook.“There are a few ‘get rich quick’ ideas out there,” he said. “Farmers need to do their homework and be aware of how the markets work now and have a plan.”OFU also tweaked its nutrient management and Lake Erie water quality special order. The family farm organization is continuing to support former Gov. John Kasich’s executive order, which identified eight watersheds feeding the harmful algal blooms in Lake Erie’s western basin. OFU’s lengthy proposal boils down to accepting impaired or distressed status for those watersheds and using funds available through SB 299 (2018) for soil testing in those areas and eventual suspension of manure spreading in “hot spots.”“We believe the state should use federal EPA’s ‘adaptive management’ concept which would allow for constant review of the data and reassessment of any action plans,” Logan said. “We believe that state agencies working with researchers and the affected farmers can ultimately manage this situation so that any prohibitions or additional regulations would be lifted when the local data reflects a return to acceptable phosphorous loads.”Also included in OFU’s policy proposals this year:A statement that USDA should respect the will of Congress on SNAP work requirements;Renewed support for the renewable fuel standard and condemnation of the overuse of so-called “hardship waivers” by the fossil fuel industry;Increased accountability for state and federal agricultural commodity check-off programs;A slate of healthcare reform proposals that would benefit rural Americans;Support for a solar energy project in Highland County;A moratorium on monopolistic, anti-competitive corporate mergers in ag industry;Tax credits for sellers of farmland to beginning farmers in Ohio; and,Support for the Buy American Agricultural Act.Follow this link to read the 2019 OFU Special Orders in their entirety.
What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Related Posts Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Tags:#mobile#news#NYT#web AT&T and Qualcomm have announced this morning that AT&T will purchase spectrum licenses from Qualcomm in the lower 700 MHz range for $1.9 billion. The licenses were previously used to to support Qualcomm’s FLO TV business, which will be shuttered, network included, in March 2011.According to AT&T, the added spectrum will be used to enhance the company’s 4G network, where it will help deliver “substantial capacity gains.”The spectrum covers over 300 million people in the U.S., including 70 million in five of the top 15 major metropolitan areas: New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and San Francisco, which are all covered by 12 MHz of Lower 700 MHz D and E block spectrum. Six MHz of Lower 700 MHz D block spectrum then covers 230 million across the rest of the country.AT&T says it will deploy the spectrum to serve as “supplemental downlink, using carrier aggregation technology,” which will “address increased consumer demand for rich mobile media content.” Or, in simpler terms, AT&T is beefing up its network so you can watch more YouTube videos on your phone.Qualcomm says that it will integrate the carrier aggregation technology into its chipset roadmap and AT&T said it will begin deploying this spectrum once compatible handsets and network equipment are developed (iPhone 5, anyone?)Why We CareWhat’s so great about the 700 MHz block of spectrum? Well, if you go by what the Engadget commenters are in a tizzy about, it’s the fact that this spectrum frequency has better building penetration, as it falls on the lower end of the scale.And, as is usually the case, those Engadget commenters are well clued-in. Bloomberg quoted Craig Moffet, an analyst with Sanford C. Bernstein & Co., as saying much of the same thing. “This is very high-quality spectrum. It’s especially concentrated in the urban areas,” he said. “It provides a very strong signal inside buildings and it’s extremely good at penetrating walls and windows.”Moffet said the spectrum will help AT&T with the network congestion problems such as those experienced by iPhone users.

With the silver and two bronze on Sunday, India took their medal haul to 11 (one gold, two silver and eight bronze) in the fourday meet, which equalled their tally in the last edition at Guangzhou two years ago when the country won one gold, three silver and seven bronze.With the likes of Ashwini Ajkkunji, Mandeep Kaur and Sini Jose caught for doping, India failed to finish on the podium in the women’s 4x400m relay. The second string quartet of Mrudula Korada, Jhuma Khatun, OP Jaisha and Tintu Luka finished fourth and last with a timing of 3: 44.17. A strong Japanese team annexed the gold in 3:35.00.The men’s 4x100m relay quartet of Ritesh Anand, Krishnakumar Rane, Shameer Mon and Rahamatulla Molla finished eighth and last in 40.38secs.

19-year-old Nicolo Zaniolo was lost for words after scoring both of AS Roma’s goals in their 2-1 first win over FC Porto in their last-16 Champions League tie.The Italian midfielder, who arrived at Roma last summer from Inter Milan as part of a trade deal for Radja Nainggolan, proved to be the difference at the Stadio Olimpico on Tuesday night for the Giallorossi with two second-half goals.Zaniolo got his first of the game in the 70th-minute after controlling Edin Dzeko’s pass and then slotting the ball past former Real Madrid keeper Iker Casillas.The teenager got his second six minutes later after Dzeko’s effort from 20 yards out hit the post for Zaniolo to then put it away to become the youngest Italian player to score a double in a Champions League match and help seal Roma a 2-1 first leg win over Porto.“I have no words, it’s a memorable day. I’ll never forget it in my life,” Zaniolo told Sky Sport Italia.“Now I want to focus on the return leg because the goal we gave up can be bothersome. We have to play like we did today without conceding anything to the opponents.“We had prepared it this way. I ran a lot, but I’m happy for the result. It’s a unique emotion to score under the Curva Sud, I can’t describe it. I hope to score many more.”Roma captain Daniele De Rossi also paid tribute to the youngster in what was also his first knockout Champions League game.“It’s another small milestone, perhaps not even a small one, that adds to what he is showing game after game and even training session after training session,” De Rossi said.Top 5 Atletico Madrid players to watch in next week’s UCL Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 With the Champions League about to start, we need to start talking about the Top 5 Atletico Madrid players to watch in the competition.Atletico…“He has an incredible natural physique for someone who is only 19 and also has great technical quality.“In my opinion, as perhaps with everyone now, he is already a very good player – and can become a great one.”Substitute Adrian Lopez capitalised on Tiquinho Soares’ mis-hit shot to score a crucial away goal for Porto to settle the scoreline at 2-1.The return leg between Porto and Roma will take place at the Estádio do Dragão in Portugal on March 6.😮 Remember the name!🇮🇹 Nicolò Zaniolo = youngest Italian player to score 2 goals in a #UCL match ⚽️⚽️ pic.twitter.com/VUyYpQ1Xop— UEFA Champions League (@ChampionsLeague) February 12, 2019
