Final TPP signed, but still a long road ahead

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Trade ministers signed the final Trans-Pacific Partnership yesterday, but the deal is far from complete.The TPP includes 12 Pacific Rim and trade representatives gathered in Auckland, New Zealand in early February to sign the final text of the TPP. Now the member countries have to each approve the trade agreement, which will likely not happen until well after this fall’s presidential election for the United StatesMany agricultural groups celebrated the progress with TPP but recognized there is still a long way to go.“After five years of negotiations, we are pleased to see the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement take another step forward today. The National Corn Growers Association supports the Trans-Pacific Partnership because it would give America’s farmers and ranchers greater access to some of the world’s fastest-growing economies. This agreement is good for both corn farmers and our friends and partners in the livestock industry. We all want to see more American grains, meat and dairy on dinner tables around the world,” said Chip Bowling, NCGA president. “This agreement will strengthen America’s influence in the Asia-Pacific region and set the tone for future international trade agreements, such as with the European Union. By supporting TPP, Congress can send a powerful message: the United States will lead on trade. That’s why NCGA members will be going to Capitol Hill in the coming months, asking Congress to vote in favor of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement in 2016.”In addition to the NCGA, the American Farm Bureau, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, American Soybean Association, National Association of Wheat Growers, and the National Pork Producers Council, among others, firmly support the TPP and will be pushing for its completion. There will likely be a tough fight for TPP supporters ahead, though, as Congress considers the deal while presidential politics dominates the nation’s political landscape in the coming months.Even within agriculture there are significant concerns about the U.S. trade balance with the deal.“TPP is modeled after the failed deals of the past, and it is destined to fail,” said Roger Johnson, president of the National Farmers Union. “Those past deals worsened America’s trade deficit, did nothing to stop our foreign competitors from cheating the system, and failed to live up to a long list of promises.”Once signed by the Administration, TPP will eventually be delivered to Congress for a debate and an up-or-down vote without amendments. Johnson and NFU members in all 50 states are urging Congress to take its time during the examination process and to ultimately reject the deal.“The more people learn about TPP, the more they dislike it,” Johnson said.  “It’s soft on enforcement, it fails to reign in predatory trade practices abroad, and it does nothing to improve America’s trade balance.”last_img read more

Use plot data to make sound decisions

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest As harvest progresses across the Eastern Corn Belt, seed companies, universities, and growers will have the chance to compile and analyze data from yield testing. One of the most important decisions a farmer will face all year is deciding what variety to plant and in which field to plant it. To ensure that the best possible decision is made next spring, it is important to spend some time looking at yield data. While reviewing data is critical, knowing how to determine whether it is accurate and useful is equally important. Below are some tips for using data to make sound planting decisions next spring.Look for replicated dataDon’t rely on yield results from one strip plot on a farm or from a single plot location. Look for data from randomized tests that are repeated multiple times and across multiple locations. Replications in testing increase the reliability of the data and helps to remove variables that can skew results.For strip plot data, was a “tester” used?Strip plots planted on farms can cover large areas of a field. In many fields in the Eastern Corn Belt there are several soil types. If a plot crosses several soil types how can you be sure it is accurate? By planting a “tester” variety at regular intervals within the plot, you can calculate adjusted yields based on the variability of the tester yield across the plot. The use of a tester minimizes the effect soil type variability has on the plot results to ensure more accurate data.Look for consistencyAccording to Bob Nielsen, Purdue Extension Agronomist, “Documented consistency in yield performance is still the key to success in selecting hybrids that will perform well in your farming operation.” When choosing a variety based on plot data, it is important to look for consistent performance—across several plot locations and between multiple years. Choose varieties that consistently performed well in 2016 and 2017, in multiple locations, and different growing conditions.Statistical significanceOn published data look for foot notes that indicate the least statistically significant yield difference, or LSD. In many plots, the performance of the top 5 or 10 varieties may not be statistically different. Although there are small differences in yield, statistical analysis of the data indicates that all varieties within the LSD have an equal chance of winning the plot.While plot data can be very useful in making decisions, some plot data is significantly more accurate and reliable. The key to getting the most out of yield data is having the ability to sort through the large amounts of information to identify the data that most accurately and reliably represents varietal performance.last_img read more

In-Camera or in Post: How to Get the Same Effects as Expensive Lenses

first_imgYou can add the first two of these in After Effects with another great template, this time from RocketStock. You need to map the lens flares to the flares in your shot, which can be fine for a couple of shots, but it could be a huge headache for an entire feature film.These experiments concluded that it’s smart to test the effect you’re thinking about before you dive headlong into in-camera or post effects, to see where the best medium is: control vs. time. Then, at least you’ll know what you’re getting into.Looking for more video production tips and tricks? Check out these articles.Master Premiere Pro’s Timeline with Source PatchingWhat to Consider When Upgrading to the Pocket Cinema 6KThe Lost Joys of Using DIY Filmmaking Equipment3 Tips for Stabilizing Smartphone Videography5 Documentary-Style Lenses for 5 Budgets In this article, we take a look at three common effects and whether the post-production version lives up to the in-camera effect.One of the oldest questions in digital cinematography is “in-camera or in post?” Do stylistic choices like lens type, filters, and lens shake work better if you use them with the camera on set, or can you produce the same effect in the comfort of your post-production home — without compromising the original negative?Both approaches have their advantages and disadvantages. In-camera effects are generally cheaper, and you can control their details on the day of shooting — with the director present for sign-off. Post-production effects take longer, but you get finer control, and if they’re too over the top, you can dial them down — or dial them up if you need to. Like any post effect, they cost more. However, they can cost a lot more if you’re trying to apply the effect — like anamorphic lens style — to an entire film.Let’s start with the easiest: lens filters. DPs who think modern digital cameras and lenses produce an image that is too sharp and clinical, and lacks the chemical imperfections of film, use pieces of glass or plastic that screw onto the lens or slide into the matte box. Tiffen’s Black Pro-Mist softens images in a very filmic way — especially skin imperfections — and blooms the highlights. It comes in different strengths, as well as screw-on and drop-in formats. We found that the mid-tone detail slider in DaVinci Resolve did a very similar job to Black Pro-Mist — as well as turning down contrast. The best result was adding the lightest kind of Black Pro-Mist 1/8 on the lens, then using Resolve to increase the effect. That way you’re not locked into an extreme look.The next challenge was camera shake. A small amount of camera shake finds its way into most handheld shots, and it is pretty standard. A violent and dramatic camera shaking effect, like those used in fight scenes or earthquakes, is hard to control and not healthy for the camera (over a long period, it can shake parts loose from the rig). There is even a device called the “image shaker” that mounts on the 15mm rails in front of the camera, shaking the image without shaking the delicate insides of the camera.With some motion blur, we found it pretty easy to add camera shake in post by using free templates on the internet and mapping the footage to them. Be aware that you’ll need to shoot at a higher resolution than your delivery resolution, so you have room to move the frame around and not see black around the outside of your frame.The last and most difficult in-camera effect we tried in post was anamorphic lenses. Many DPs are obsessed with anamorphic, but few movie-goers know or care which lens shape a filmmaker uses. That said, they can probably work on a conscious level to associate the film with other movies — both classic and contemporary — shot anamorphic.The three main visual qualities of anamorphic are vignetting, edge distortion, and an oval horizontal lens flare.last_img read more

IPL 2011: Kolkata take on unpredictable Kochi

first_imgKolkata Knight Riders will have revenge on mind when they take on the unpredictable Kochi Tuskers Kerala in their return leg IPL match in Kochi on Thursday.Kolkata lost by a six runs when the two teams squared off at the Eden Gardens on April 20 but fortunes have turned dramatically for both sides since then. While Gautam Gambhir’s Kolkata sit pretty at the top of the table after six wins and just three defeats so far, Mahela Jayawardene’s Kerala managed to end a three-match losing streak in their previous outing against Delhi Daredevils.On form, Kolkata start clear favourites with a formidable batting line-up and an equally intimidating bowling attack. Gambhir’s men have been a dominant force in the event rarely floundering.Kochi, on the other hand, have been inconsistent so far. The tournament debutants impressed by beating big teams such as the Mumbai Indians during the event but on most occasions, they have failed to click as a unit.After three straight losses, they sprung back to life by beating Delhi and skipper Mahela Jayawardene hoped it brings some consistency in his side’s performance.-With PTI inputslast_img read more
