Martin County Bar organizes Constitution Week programs October 15, 2005 Regular News Martin County Bar organizes Constitution Week programs To educate the public regarding the separation of powers and the role of an independent judiciary, the Martin County Bar initiated a Constitution Week project in September.Twenty-four attorneys and judges spoke at 30 assemblies in the county’s schools. MCBA Secretary Alan Forst contacted each of the county’s schools and recruited attorneys and judges to speak for 90 minutes at the high schools and 35 minutes at the other schools regarding the history and contents of the Constitution, with an emphasis on the provisions of the Bill of Rights and the role of the courts in maintaining the rule of law.MCBA President Richard Levenstein and 19th Circuit Judge William Roby both participated in the project. As a result of the positive response they have received from administrators, teachers, students, and the attorneys and judges who spoke, Forst, Roby and Levenstein have already begun planning for 2006.

Cisse has offered to wear an unbranded or charity-dedicated shirt, but the feeling behind the scenes at St James’ Park is that he, like his Muslim team-mates who have agreed to display the Wonga branding, is contractually obliged to do so. Mr Ahad said: “I was really proud of him standing up against Wonga because he was someone standing up for his beliefs. “Now it appears he’s been into a casino and that just makes everyone think there are people in our religion who pick and choose. That detracts from the goodness of Islam. “It’s quite naive of him. He’s quite young and he’s a footballer, but please don’t use religion for your own gain. “You have to be wise in religion. It’s not a game, it’s not a joke. That’s the problem, that’s why people have a bad perception of religion today.” Manager Alan Pardew is currently playing a waiting game over his frontline with Cisse’s future uncertain and the club engaged in the pursuit of Lyon’s Bafetimbi Gomis and Aston Villa’s Darren Bent. The 28-year-old Senegal international is currently at the centre of a wrangle with his club over his refusal to wear the logo of payday loan company Wonga on his shirt. Muslims are forbidden to benefit from interest payments – or Riba – under Islamic Law, and Cisse is uncomfortable about being asked to endorse Wonga. Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse has been warned he cannot pick and choose elements of Islam after being photographed in a casino. Press Association However, a picture has emerged of Cisse at the city’s Aspers Casino, and despite agent Madou Diene’s insistence that he is not a gambler – something else which is prohibited by his religion – Newcastle City Councillor Dipu Ahad has insisted the striker cannot have it both ways. Mr Ahad told Press Association Sport: “There are no grey areas in Islam when it comes to interest-based loans and there are no grey areas with regards to gambling. “For example, alcohol is forbidden, adultery is forbidden, gambling is forbidden and earning interest is forbidden. “You can’t pick and choose. If he has come out and said he is not going to wear the Wonga shirt, brilliant, but what really grates on me is people using religion for their own gain. “I don’t know what he’s seeking to achieve. People say he wants to move away from Newcastle United – that’s his business, I haven’t spoken to him. “If he wants to wear the Wonga shirt or not or gamble or not is up to him, it’s between him and God.” Mr Ahad, who represents the city’s Elswick ward, had previously applauded Cisse’s stance over Wonga, a situation which is threatening the £9million man’s continued presence on Tyneside. The player, who has been linked with a lucrative move to Russia, has enlisted the help of the Professional Footballers’ Association in an effort to resolve the situation with talks to date having resulted in little progress.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Now that first harvest of forage crops is completed or in progress, some may be noticing the low yields in damaged forage stands, or they may realize the need for additional forage supplies this summer. There is always the temptation to no-till something into existing stands in an effort to produce more tonnage, but I believe that is a risky proposition this time of the year. The existing stand will compete heavily for moisture and regrowth of the existing stand will shade new seedlings struggling to get established. So at this point in the year, I think it is best to either kill a poor stand and seed an annual crop for summer forage production, or find open land available to seed an annual forage for supplemental feed.There are several good options for producing supplemental forage from annual crops planted in June, which are discussed here. Additional options for supplemental forage exist for planting in late summer, particularly following wheat harvest. Those options were discussed in an article available at http://corn.osu.edu/newsletters/2012/2012-24/#7. Corn silageFor anyone considering forages for silage, corn should be the first choice because of its high yields and energy content. Corn can be planted as late as mid- to late June for silage production; however, it does carry increased risk especially if dry weather develops. Nevertheless, June planted corn with adequate rainfall can produce more forage with greater feeding value than other summer annual grasses. If forage is needed before the ear is formed, corn can be green chopped. Even without the ear, the feeding value of corn is at least equal to that of the other summer annual grasses and yields are likely to be higher. Summer annual grassesSudangrass, sorghum x sudangrass hybrids, pearl millet, and forage sorghum grow rapidly in summer. When managed properly, these grasses can provide good quality forage. All these species can be planted up to mid-July and will produce 3.5 to 5 tons of dry matter per acre assuming sufficient moisture is present for emergence and growth. Pearl millet is essentially free of prussic acid poisoning potential, while the sorghum species have the potential for prussic acid poisoning which varies by species. Nitrate toxicity is possible with all summer annual grasses. Refer to the Agronomy Guide (pages 111-114) for how to reduce these risks and for more details on establishment and management (http://agcrops.osu.edu/specialists/fertility/fertility-fact-sheets-and-bulletins/agron_guide.pdf/view).Mixtures of summer-annual grasses and legumes such as field peas and soybeans are marketed by some seed dealers. The legumes generally improve protein content but only in the first growth when they are present. Because the legumes usually increase the seed cost, evaluate the cost to benefit ratio of purchasing mixtures with legumes vs. supplementing livestock with other protein sources.Teff is a relatively new warm-season grass option that can be used for hay, silage, or pasture. In our test plots it produced about 3 to 4 tons of dry matter per acre from 3 cuttings (http://oardc.osu.edu/forage2008/table14.asp, http://oardc.osu.edu/forage2009/table11.asp). It can tolerate drought-stressed as well as waterlogged soil conditions. For more details on managing this forage, see an excellent factsheet from Cornell University found at http://nmsp.cals.cornell.edu/publications/factsheets/factsheet24.pdf. SoybeansSoybean can be grown for forage, but it is extremely difficult to make good soybean hay and ensiling soybean also has problems. The high concentration of fat (about 10%) inhibits bacteria in the silage and fermentation is slow and often incomplete. The best approach to using soybeans as a forage is to mix them with corn plants during silo filling. A mixture of 1 part or more of corn to 1 part soybean works well. In large diameter upright silos, adequate mixing usually occurs when one load of corn is unloaded followed by one load of soybeans. In smaller diameter upright silos one-half load of soybeans followed by one-half to a full load of corn will usually result in adequate mixing. For silo bags, mixing is difficult. The ratio of corn to soybeans should be increased and the amount of soybeans put in the silo at one time should be small. The best solution would be to chop about one-fourth to one-half load of soybeans and fill the rest of the wagon with corn. Use of herbicide-treated soybeans for forage or hay is allowed for only a few herbicides, so check chemical labels before using herbicides on soybeans to be used for forage.Several brassica species can be planted in May for late summer grazing. For more information on this option, refer to The Ohio Agronomy Guide, pages 114-118.

Nikon just launched the first-ever Android-powered point-and-shoot camera. It’s a smart move designed to make the company’s line of consumer products relevant in a world of ubiquitous phonecams. It could also turn out to be good for mobile photography in general. If the concept catches on, we’ll see a dramatic improvement in the quality of images posted on Instagram, Flickr, Facebook and other services. The Coolpix S800c looks no different from any other point-and-shoot until you flip it around. The back of the device more closely resembles a smartphone, complete with the Android 2.3 home screen filling up a 3.5-inch display. Yes, it will have access to apps in the Google Play store.It’s only fitting that the line between smartphones and cameras would be blurred in this way. More and more of the world’s photographs are being snapped on phones and it’s up to the camera manufacturers to find a way to keep up. If only Kodak had thought of something like this. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… john paul titlow Tags:#Photo Sharing Services#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Even the Best Smartphone Cameras SuckThe two most popular cameras used on Flickr aren’t even cameras. They’re the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.As nice as the cameras are on even the best smartphones, though, they still don’t compare to the specs on devices whose sole purpose is taking photos. Take the camera on the iPhone 4S, which is considered one of the best of its kind. Its 8-megapixel censor is good, but Nikon and Canon both double that resolution with their entry level consumer point-and-shoots. Like previous models, the Coolpix S800c shoots 16-megapixel images. Smartphone cameras have other serious limitations. Their lenses have a fixed focal distance, so zooming in requires a faked digital zoom that rarely produces good results. By contrast, the S800c has a legit 10x optical zoom. To its credit, the iPhone 4S has a pretty wide aperture, which lets in a reasonable anount of light, it still doesn’t do well in low light. Anybody who has tried to snap a picture in a dimly-lit bar without turning on the iPhone’s (often gross-looking) flash knows that the device wasn’t built for low-light photography. By contrast, cameras like the Nikon Coolpix and Canon PowerShow can boast ISO’s as high as 3200, which allows for much clearer images taken in low light. Because of the technical restrictions inherent in an iPhone or Android smartphone, there is a whole range of scenarios and places that just don’t look good on Instagram, filters or not. Sure, some users copy images from their SLR or point-and-shoot and upload them Instagram, but that’s a minority of the service’s 80 million users. For most, it’s too laborious. By baking a familiar mobile OS into its cameras, Nikon is streamlining the process of getting higher-quality images onto Instagram, Facebook and a host of other photo apps and social networks. Canon and Apple, Take NoteMore important, the Coolpix S800c might pressure other companies to update their own products accordingly. Canon would be foolish not to consider adapting its line of compact point-and-shoots, and both companies may consider baking a mobile operating system into higher-end SLR cameras. If smart cameras catch on, Apple and other phonemakers will be that much more inclined to enhance the iPhone’s camera by more than just a few megapixels per year. The result of all of this would be more photos more widely shared and of much higher quality. It’s a noble goal, and an exiciting one – but first we’ll have to see whether consumers are willing to buy and carry device that’s dedicated to snapping photos. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market

Many of your prospects believe you are supposed to be transactional. Especially when it comes to your price.Globalization has made the entire world our competitors, including places with lower labor costs and every bit as much intellectual power. The Internet has disintermediated anything and anyone that can’t differentiate their offering with real value. The recessions that bookended the last decade coupled with the rise of purchasing and supply chain management have tried to commoditize everything—even companies who haven’t made the choice to compete on price.We’re supposed to be Wal-Mart and Apple at the same time. We’re supposed to deliver the best results, at the fastest speed, and at the lowest price. And therein is the problem.If you have the lowest price, execution is difficult. It’s impossibly difficult for you to deliver the best results. It’s also difficult for you to deliver results fast. You don’t have the money to invest in those outcomes. Wal-Mart doesn’t invest in nice stores. They don’t provide a great shopping experience. It’s a warehouse. Your business isn’t a warehouse.If you have higher prices, you can more easily deliver the outcomes your clients really need. You can deliver better results. You can also deliver them faster. You have the money to invest in those outcomes. You can invest time in your clients. With profit, you can be relational instead of transactional.You’re not supposed to be transactional. It isn’t your business model. Because this is true, you can’t compete on price. Instead, you have to find prospective clients—dream clients—that value better results more than they value the lowest price. It isn’t easy, but it’s the only way to deliver the real value that you create.QuestionsWhich of your prospective clients want you to price like you are transactional?Is that really the value that you create? Is it your business model?Can you think of something you buy that is the lowest price in its category and still delivers the best experience?

It’s not just Swachh Bharat that’s positioning itself firmly on people’s minds. Slowly but steadily, the next big Jan Andolan, the POSHAN Andolan is also taking shape in India. In the latest episode of “Man Ki Baat,” on August 25, 2019, Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke extensively about Poshan. A movement against the gigantic problem of undernutrition was long due in India. Let’s take a look at the startling figures. As many as 38.4 per cent children are stunted (low height for age), 35.7 per cent children are underweight (low weight for age), 21 per cent children are wasted (low weight for height), 53 per cent women in the age of 15-40 years are anaemic, and 22.9 per cent women have low Body Mass Index. So consequences of any further delay in attention on this would have been disastrous. Also Read – A special kind of bondNutrition constitutes the foundation for human development. It reduces susceptibility to infections, related morbidity, disability and mortality burden. Proper nutrition enhances cumulative lifelong learning capacities and adult productivity. Nutrition is critical to the physical and cognitive development of children as well as women’s health. Undernutrition, anaemia and stunting are underlying causes behind half of under-five children mortality and one-fifth of maternal mortality in India. Undernutrition also has a serious bearing on learning outcomes in children and productivity in adults. Also Read – Insider threat managementTo generate a mass movement for a Kuposhan Mukt Bharat – free from malnutrition, across the life cycle, the government of India had launched POSHAN Abyhyaan on March 8, 2018. The government also provided a massive budgetary commitment of Rs 9046.17 crores for the Abhiyaan. A big challenge like this can only be tackled with high goals. Thus, ambitious targets of reducing stunting by 2 per cent, anaemia by 3 per cent and low birth weight by 2 per cent every year for three years were set for the mission. These targets are formidable given the history that maternal and child undernutrition in India has persisted despite a slew of government schemes and programmes. Data shows that Stunting had just decreased by just 1 per cent annually between 2005-06 and 2014-15, while underweight prevalence went down by a mere 0.68 per cent annually. Surprisingly, Wasting, on the other hand, went up slightly by 1.8 per cent during this period. To reverse the trend and achieve the dream of a Kuposhan Mukt Bharat, Prime Minister gave the call to make it a “Jan-Andolan”. This meant taking the message of nutrition to every household and involving every person in the fight against malnutrition. There has already been a series of intensive efforts to build the Jan-Andolan against malnutrition at the village, block, district, and state levels. However, the real battle on the ground is being fought by our 14 lakh foot soldiers, the Anganwadi didis. Anganwadi didis get a meagre amount of Rs 4,500 per month as honorarium by the Centre. Many states also pay an additional honorarium to them. However, the motivation of these foot soldiers lies in their burning desire to do something for the community as against any monetary benefit. The list of duties that Anganwadi didis perform is humongous. For pregnant women and lactating mothers, they provide supplementary nutrition or take home ration, nutrition and health education, and test them for anaemia. They also facilitate health check-ups and referral services and provide counselling on early initiation of breastfeeding, exclusive breastfeeding, complementary feeding, family planning and balanced diet, hygiene and sanitation. Duties of Anganwadi didis also include looking after children of 0 to 6 years of age. They provide them early childhood education, supplementary nutrition, iron and folic supplementation, and deworming. They also monitor their growth, help in managing diarrhoea, and teach them handwashing and hygiene. Anganwadi didis are true friends of adolescent girls, who come to them with the various problems they encounter. They also provide them with counselling on health and nutrition and also provide them with supplementary nutrition. With POSHAN Abhiyan, they have now been equipped with smartphones and tablets. Their capacity has also been enhanced through training on 21 specially designed modules. Anganwadis have also been provided with growth monitoring devices, teaching and learning material and Flexi-fund. The Union Ministry of Women and Child Development recently organised an award function to recognise the contribution of Anganwadi didis. 237 Anganwadi didis and other foot soldiers were felicitated at the function for their exceptional contribution to the fight against malnutrition. Recently in Mann ki Baat, Prime Minister also talked about some of these initiatives like ‘Mutthi Bhar Dhaanya’ in Nashik district in Maharashtra, where Anganwadi didis go house to house to collect food grains from people during the harvest period and use them to feed women and children at Anganwadis. “Ann-Praashan Sanskar” is another such initiative being pioneered by Anganwadi didis to celebrate the first morsel of supplementary food for a child. Such celebrations have spread awareness about the importance of supplementary nutrition among the masses. “Tithi-Bhojan” or the meal campaign is one more innovative concept pioneered by Anganwadi didis. It is a wonderful confluence of a sense of service and satisfaction where people carry food to Anganwadis and celebrate their birthdays, other auspicious days with the children in Anganwadis. Anganwadi didis with other foot soldiers of the health department, namely ANMs and ASHA workers are mobilising the community through community-based events like prabhat-pheris, suposhan-rallies, suposhan-chaupals, and Village Health, Sanitation and Nutrition Days (VHNDs). Our Anganwadi didis have integrated social festivals and family festivals like “God Bharai” with nutrition. Anganwadi centres are now buzzing with a plethora of activities like cooking competition, parent meets, mehndi competitions, and drawing competitions. One should not be surprised to see vegetable gardens at the Anganwadis, producing nutritious fresh vegetables. They add value to the food being served at the Anganwadis. Our Anganwadi didis are playing a key role in generating awareness and taking the message of nutrition to every household. The Union Ministry of Women and Child Development has recently launched a campaign to thank our Anganwadi didis. A film showing the contribution of Anganwadi didis in protecting and promoting the health of women and children was also released on the occasion. It is high time that each one of us recognises the contribution of our Anganwadi didis. They need to be thanked for their efforts to bring the country out of the circle of malnutrition and in building a strong and healthy India – securing the future of the country. Let’s join the movement and visit our foot soldiers at Anganwadi centres. Let’s have selfies with them and recognise their selfless service. Let’s say in one voice, #thankyouAnganwadiDidi.
