Around 63 per cent said they would not go to university if fees rose to £6,000, rising to 80 per cent if they were faced with uncapped fees.The news will be a bitter blow to Vince Cable, a champion of the tax, as he prepares for a speech this afternoon on funding for higher education.The government is awaiting a review by former BP boss Lord Brown, who is expected to recommend fees rise by £3,290 to as much as £7,000 a year. whatsapp Graduate tax will reward dropouts, say directors Share Tuesday 21 September 2010 8:27 pmlast_img read more

Soybean Yield Calculator: A New Mobile App

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Soybean Yield Calculator: A New Mobile App Feeder Cattle GFQ21 (AUG 21) 151.18 2.78 Soybean ZSN21 (JUL 21) 1508.50 -35.50 SHARE Soybean Yield Calculator: A New Mobile App K-State’s Ignacio Ciampitti (right) demonstrates the new soybean yield estimator app to Garrett Kennedy of Knopf Farms, Saline County. A new mobile app for estimating soybean yields is now available from Kansas State University. KSUSoyYieldCalc is a native Android application that helps with yield estimation of soybeans before harvest following the conventional approach of counting or estimating plant populations, pods per plant, seeds per pod, and seed size, said Ignacio Ciampitti, crop production specialist with K-State Research and Extension. How Indiana Crops are Faring Versus Other States Facebook Twitter Wheat ZWN21 (JUL 21) 680.75 -3.00 “If the conditions until harvest will be favorable, then the seed size component should be a lower number to reflect a larger seed size. If conditions are likely to be unfavorable, resulting in a short seed-fill period, the ‘seed size per pound’ number entered into the calculator should be higher. Seed size will be ultimately determined as the crop approaches maturity, but an estimation is needed considering the importance of this factor for influencing final soybean yields,” he said. Name Sym Last Change Seed size normally varies from 2,400 to 3,200 seeds per pound, depending on growing conditions, Ciampitti said. Lean Hogs HEM21 (JUN 21) 122.68 0.22 The calculator needs only four inputs for predicting the final yield. The coding for the KSUSoy YieldCalc app was developed by Tania Bandyopadhyay, graduate student in K-State’s Department of Computing and Information Sciences (CIS), under the supervision of Dan Andresen, associate professor of CIS, in collaboration with Ciampitti.

Much of East Coast under flood watch as wet, stormy pattern threatens region

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — A wet pattern is taking shape across the eastern U.S. again. Numerous to widespread thunderstorms are expected as a frontal system from the west approaches and stalls over the region.There have already been flash flood warnings on Wednesday morning for parts of Virginia, including the Charlottesville area. Radar estimated that 3 to 6 inches of rain have fallen in parts of interior Virginia, causing flooding. Some roads were reported to be closed in Charlottesville overnight due to the flooding.Strong storms overnight also caused some damage and flooding along the Ohio and Michigan border and in the Detroit metro area.Flash flood watches have now been posted from Western Florida to Central Pennsylvania. Rainfall rates of 2 inches per hour are possible in thunderstorms, which could produce flash flooding.A slight risk for severe weather exists Wednesday for more than 14 million Americans from Virginia to New York. Scattered severe storms will bring the possibility of damaging winds, large hail and brief tornadoes. The best chance for brief tornadoes will be just west of Interstate 95.Rainfall totals by the end of this week could exceed 4 inches across parts of northern Georgia, western North Carolina and South Carolina. Widespread rainfall totals of 2 to 4 inches are possible from Florida to Vermont.This wet pattern for the first few days of August comes after a record-breaking July across the east.

Patriots owner Robert Kraft buys Nir Meir’s Hamptons home for $43M

first_img40 Meadow Lane, Nir Meir and Robert Kraft (Google Maps, HFZ, Getty)The mystery buyer of former HFZ Capital executive Nir Meir’s Hamptons home has finally been revealed.New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft purchased the estate at 40 Meadow Lane in Bridgehampton in an off-market deal for $43 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.The property was at the center of litigation between Meir, who was previously a principal at HFZ, and the development firm’s founder, Ziel Feldman, along with the firm’s creditors.The wealthy Fulton Cutting family owned the property — formerly home to a smaller cottage known as A Wee Lyr Mor — for decades, and listed it for $17.5 million in 2011. An LLC registered with HFZ’s New York office purchased the home for $10.5 million in 2013, records show.ADVERTISEMENTRead moreJudge rules against Nir Meir in HFZ’s $19M default case Lawsuit to eject former HFZ principal Nir Meir from Hampton’s home discontinued How HFZ became the face of Manhattan’s condo woes Email Address* Full Name* Tags Message* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Share via Shortlink The buyer then applied for a demolition permit to knock down the cottage and build a modern home, sparking pushback from neighbors and a lawsuit that temporarily stalled construction. The new home was eventually built in 2017.Last December, an entity tied to the lender Monroe Capital filed a lawsuit seeking to eject Meir from the home. But he filed a countersuit in January, alleging that HFZ convinced the lender to participate in a scheme to fraudulently purport to “transfer” the property. Both complaints were discontinued in March.The sale of the home was revealed in another lawsuit filed by a company tied to Yoav Harlap, an Israeli investor and one of HFZ’s lenders. The suit attempted to stop the sale of the home so that Harlap could collect on the proceeds to satisfy a debt. But the buyer of the home was not revealed at that time..HFZ was once one of New York’s largest and most active condo developers, but now the company is battling liens, foreclosures, and numerous lawsuits.A representative for Meir did not return a request for comment.[WSJ] — Keith LarsenContact Keith Larsen Celebrity Real Estatehamptons-weeklyHFZ CapitalResidential Real EstateThe Hamptonslast_img read more

The respiratory system of the femaleVarroa jacobsoni (Oudemans): its adaptations to a range of environmental conditions

first_imgThe morphology of the respiratory system of the femaleVarroa jacobsoni (Oudemans, 1904) is described. The mobile, appendage-like, emergent peritreme may be ‘raised’ to lie against the ventral integument or ‘lowered’ between the third and fourth pair of legs. It is ‘raised’ when the mite is submerged in the liquid food of the host’s brood chamber, where respiration occurs via an external plastron, formed by an airfilm trapped between the rough cuticle of the ventral integument and the retracted legs. The peritreme is also raised when the mite is outside the hive in sub-saturated air, to reduce water vapour transpiration, and it is ‘lowered’ in the carbon-dioxide-rich and water-saturated hive atmosphere, where it facilitates rapid removal of carbon dioxide. Thus gaseous exchange in the female mites may be adjusted by the position of the peritreme.last_img read more
