Brazil Soybean Exports Expected to Pass U.S.

first_img SHARE Brazil Soybean Exports Expected to Pass U.S. By Hoosier Ag Today – Jun 26, 2018 A forecast by the Department of Agriculture shows an increase in production could drive Brazil to pass the U.S. in soybean exports. Brazil is already the leading global producers of soybeans, and the second-largest exporter of the crop. USDA says Brazil’s soybean output is currently forecasted to exceed that of the United States by the 2018/19 marketing year. The milestone would represent a 22 percent increase in production over the last three years for Brazil. Almost all the increased production has made its way to the export market, according to USDA, which has risen 34 percent over the same time.In addition to significant growth in sales to China, Iran and Russia, domestic conditions in 2018 have also driven up exports. In May, Brazil’s soybean shipments reached a record high, despite a trucker strike in the nation and stalled deliveries to ports.

Quarterback Dylan Thomas on road to recovery following MCL injury

Inflammation and swelling in the knee would be treated with ice and electrical stimulation.Thomas will begin his physical therapy on Nov. 2 and will be finished by Dec. 2. He will be working on regaining his cutting and speed beginning in three weeks.Paschal’s final regular season game is on Nov. 5 against Arlington High School. The team has not won a game since losing Thomas, currently with a record of 3-5.It is likely Thomas will wear a knee brace designed to protect the MCL when he returns to the field and while it will slightly alter how he plays, Urbanek said the reward outweighs the cost.“[The ligament] will tighten up somewhat but it won’t be as strong as it was before,” Urbanek said. “[The brace] is going to protect the knee and deflect any blows from the outside.”While Thomas can protect himself physically from being harmed again, it is the psychological effect he will also have to worry about. Urbanek has seen the mental toll knee injuries inflict on athletes time and time again.“It can be devastating to athletes that put so much into their sport,” Urbanek said. “They’re having to rehab instead practicing or working out with their teammates.”Thomas said he felt this devastation in the initial days following his injury.“You can’t help but cry, it’s just something that happens,” Thomas said.Urbanek said the key to a successful rehab from any knee injury, including an MCL tear, is work ethic.“You get out of it what you put into it,” Urbanek said. “The harder they work, the sooner they can be ready.”Thomas has already adopted this mindset. Thomas said he has been working since the injury to strengthen everything around his knee.“This is a crucial point…I want to come stronger than I was before, stronger than I was before, jump higher than I could before,” Thomas said. “I just want to come back better than ever.”Thomas said he has been in contact with TCU, where he has committed to play next year. He said several coaches, including co-offensive coordinator Doug Meacham, have told him to stay positive and focus on his recovery.TCU is still offering Thomas a scholarship.

Photo Courtesy of http://kneeortho.orgWhile Thomas’ injury is a severe one, he was told it was the best of what could have been a much worse situation. “[The doctors] told me if I was going to hurt something that would be the thing to hurt because it’s the only thing that can heal on it’s own,” Thomas said. “It’s pretty much based on me and based on how I heal.”According to a study conducted by the University of Colorado Denver during the 2012-2013 school year, MCL injuries are the most common among high school athletes. However, due to its severity, the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries garner more attention from the public than Thomas’ more common MCL injury. Urbanek attributed the severity of ACL injuries to its infamy.“With an season-ending injury such as the ACL, you’re talking about surgery, rehab, that goes six to eight months, sometimes a year,” Urbanek said. “That can take away their whole season.”This is evident in professional and college sports as well. While MCL injuries are more common, the recovery time is far shorter than that of an ACL. [&lt;a href=”//” target=”_blank”&gt;View the story “MCL Sprains in sports” on Storify&lt;/a&gt;] Linkedinlast_img read more

Despite the rise however, the homeownership rate is 0.2 percent below the rate of 64.0 percent last year during the same period.In addition, the homeownership rate, while up from a 48-year low in the second quarter of 2015, is still below the peak of 69.2 percent in June 2004.After suffering a major drop in November 2015, existing-home sales rose 14.7 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.46 million in December, up from 4.46 million in November. Year-over-year, existing-home sales are up 7.7 percent, and December’s jump will mark the largest increase ever.According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the first-time buyers share was at 32 percent in December, up from 30 percent in November and 29 percent a year ago. For the year, first-time buyers made up 30 percent of homebuyers, up 1 percentage point from 2014 and 2013.”First-time buyers were for the most part held back once again in 2015 by rising rents and home prices, competition from vacation and investment buyers and supply shortages,” said Lawrence Yun, NAR Chief Economist. “While these headwinds show little signs of abating, the cumulative effect of strong job growth in recent years and young renters’ overwhelming interest to own a home should lead to a modest uptick in first-time buyer activity in 2016.”The Bureau found that homeownership was highest among those 65 years and older at 79.3 percent int he fourth quarter of 2015, down slightly 79.5 percent in the previous quarter. However, the only age group to increase their homeownership rate was the 35 to 44-year olds, from 58.8 percent in the fourth quarter of last year to 59.3 percent in the fourth quarter of 2015.”Jobs are being created at a rapid pace, and we expect earnings growth will finally start to rise this year.”Matthew Pointon, Capital Economics”Today’s Census Homeownership and Vacancy Survey release also provides optimism that the homeownership rate may have hit bottom in 2015,” said Ralph B. McLaughlin, Chief Economist at Trulia. “Many Gen Xers lost their homes during the recession, so this is a positive sign that we may be seeing boomerang buyers coming back into housing market. However, the increase was not statistically significant from a year ago.”Capital Economics Property Economist Matthew Pointon added, “That gradual rise in the homeownership rate should continue over the next few years. On the demand side, there are large numbers of young adults who are currently living with their parents. And many of them would like to form their own household. The financial crisis locked them out of homeownership, as they lost their jobs and/or banks refused to provide them with a mortgage. But both factors are now steadily improving. Jobs are being created at a rapid pace, and we expect earnings growth will finally start to rise this year. As well as allowing more households to access homeownership, that will also cut down on mortgage delinquencies and keep more families in their homes.”The Bureau reported that the homeownership rates were highest in the Midwest at 68.1 percent in the fourth quarter, and lowest in the West at 59.0 percent. All regions, except the West experienced a year-over-year decline in homeownership.Rental vacancy rates in the fourth quarter were 7.0 percent in the fourth quarter, unchanged from last year and down 0.3 percent from the previous quarter. The homeowner vacancy rate was 1.9 percent for the quarter, also unchanged from last year and last quarter.”An improving labor market and easing credit conditions are finally leading to a gradual rise in the homeownership rate. But the rental vacancy rate has yet to rise, and that will put upwards pressure on rents over the coming months,” Pointon stated.Click here to view the full report.center_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / The Great Debate: Has the Homeownership Rate Bottomed Out?

Reconstructing the long-term aa index

first_imgThe robustness of the aa geomagnetic index is of critical importance to the debate about the previously reported doubling of the solar coronal magnetic field in the last 100 years, inferred from an increasing trend in this index. To test the trend in aa, we have reconstructed the aa index using two long-running European stations (Sodankylä from 1914 and Niemegk from 1890) to provide data for the northern component of the index that are independent of data from the UK observatories used in the “official” aa index. Both the fully “reconstructed” aa series, based on Sodankylä (67°N, L = 5.2 R E ) and Niemegk (52°N, L = 2.3 R E ) data in combination with the official aa Southern Hemisphere data, confirm the increasing trend in the index. The Niemegk-based index shows little solar cycle variation in its deviation from the official index, probably because of the midlatitude location of the station. The high-latitude station, Sodankylä, is more affected by active geomagnetic conditions during solar maximum because of the proximity of the auroral oval to the station. Nevertheless, its index also clearly confirms the increasing trend in the aa index and hence supports the idea of a long-term increase in solar coronal magnetic field strength. As an added test, we reconstructed the aa index from a single site using data from two long-running UK stations, Eskdalemuir and Lerwick, applying a technique known as interhourly variation (IHV) proposed by Svalgaard et al. (2004). The resulting series is designed to be primarily sensitive to solar wind conditions. Both the reconstructed aa IHV also showed an increasing trend with time and high consistency with the official aa index. Overall, we conclude that the robustness of the trend in the aa index supports the idea of a long-term increase in solar coronal magnetic field strength.last_img read more

Small-scale estimation of relative abundance for the coastal spotted dolphins (Stenella attenuata) in Costa Rica: the effect of habitat and seasonality

first_imgThe coastal spotted dolphin (Stenella attenuata graffmani) is one of the most common species ofdolphin in inshore Pacific waters of Costa Rica. We conducted surveys in protected waters of the PapagayoGulf, Costa Rica, to determine relative abundance of dolphins in relation to environmental variables. Weused Generalized Additive Models to investigate the influence of a particular set of environmental factors anddetermine inter-annual trends in relative abundance. School sizes ranged from 1 to 50 individuals ( mean 9.95,SD=10.28). The number of dolphins increased linearly with water depth and transparency, and non-linearly withthe dissolved oxygen concentration. High variability in the relative abundance occurred during the dry season(January-April). A previous study on this population found that high number of groups are involved in foragingactivities during the dry season. Seasonal changes in relative abundance probably are associated with foodavailability, a variable that we did not measure. Understanding local resident populations may have importantimplications for conservation and management strategies. Large-scale studies may overlook variables affectingthe abundance of local resident populations that may be detected with studies on a smaller scale such as this one.last_img read more
