first_img Show Comments ▼ KCS-content CHANCELLOR George Osborne has said that Britain will be free of its commitment to fund Eurozone bailouts by 2013, even as the European Council (EC) meets today to negotiate the legal basis of a permanent bailout fund. The EU summit comes as the Irish parliament voted yesterday to accept the terms of the €85bn (£72bn) EU/IMF bailout. The vote underscored Prime Minister Brian Cowen’s fragile grip: the bailout passed 81-75, with the governing coalition relying on the support of three independent MPs. Opposition parties have sworn to renegotiate the bailout if they win next year’s elections.Osborne announced that Britain stands to make £440m from interest on its £3.25bn bilateral loan to Ireland. But he also assured parliament that he has struck a deal to free Britain from its participation in Eurozone bailouts once a permanent fund is established in 2013. The UK is obliged to contribute up to €7bn for any bailouts until then under the terms of a deal negotiated by former-chancellor Alistair Darling.The European Council meets today and tomorrow to alter EU treaties in order to establish a permanent fund.

The broker thinks the market has overreacted to the news flow on regulatory pressure on electricity tariffs and the risks associated with M&A activity, and expects an 18 per cent increase in earnings before tax in 2011 compared to 2010. Its 12-month price target increases 24 per cent to $7.80 (£4.73). RECKITT BENCKISERNomura rates the consumer goods giant “buy” with a target price of 3800p following its first quarter results last week, which saw core sales growth broadly in line with expectations and core earnings before tax slightly ahead of expectations. Most importantly, the brokers sees the company’s health and personal care brands having returned to good growth and developing market margins back in positive trend, having caused concern last year. SHIRE PHARMACEUTICALSCredit Suisse rates the pharma giant as “overweight” with a target price of 1900p ahead of first quarter results due out this Thursday. The broker expects an unusually strong performance from key product Adderall XR, driven by a sharp increase in volumes over the quarter. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) treatment Vyvanse should also benefit with an increase of 16 per cent year on year, as ADHD drugs continue to outperform. center_img whatsapp whatsapp Share by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search Adsmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediaMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryBetterBeDrones Capture Images No One Was Suppose to SeeBetterBeZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Herald Tags: NULLlast_img read more

They will be emailing the charities directly, inviting them to complete a questionnaire.The survey will run for four weeks, and the Commission intends to publish the findings of the research later this year.Alan Bryce, Head of Development and Operational Intelligence at the Charity Commission said:“This is a really important project that should significantly improve our understanding of what’s happening across the charity sector and shape our regulatory engagement, helping to build a stronger counter-fraud culture for the future. I urge those charities contacted to get actively involved and complete the questionnaire – your answers really will make a difference.” Advertisementlast_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter Bob Nielsen Agronomy Dept., Purdue Univ.Fancy colored yield maps are fine for verifying grain yields at the end of the harvest season, but bragging rights for the highest corn yields are established earlier than that down at the Main Street Cafe, on the corner of 5th and Earl. Some patrons of the cafe begin “eyeballing” their yields as soon as their crops reach “roasting ear” stage. Some of the guys there are pretty good (or just plain lucky) at estimating yields prior to harvest, while the estimates by others are not even close to being within the proverbial ballpark. Interestingly, they all use the same procedure referred to as the Yield Component Method.Yield Component MethodOther pre-harvest yield prediction methods exist but the Yield Component Method is probably the most popular because it can be used well ahead of harvest; as early as the so-called “roasting ear” or milk (R3) stage of kernel development. Under “normal” conditions, the kernel milk stage occurs about 18 to 22 days after pollination is complete (Nielsen, 2016). Estimates made earlier in the kernel development period risk being overly optimistic if subsequent severe stresses cause unforeseen kernel abortion.The Yield Component Method was originally described by the University of Illinois many years ago and is based on the premise that one can estimate grain yield from estimates of the yield components that constitute grain yield. These yield components include number of ears per acre, number of kernel rows per ear, number of kernels per row, and weight per kernel. The first three yield components (ear number, kernel rows, kernels/row) are easily measured in the field.Final weight per kernel obviously cannot be measured until the grain is mature (kernel black layer) and, technically, at a grain moisture of 15% since that is the typical moisture value used to determine a 56-lb market bushel. Consequently, an average value for kernel weight is used as a proverbial “fudge factor” in the yield estimation equation. As first described many years ago, the equation originally used a “fudge factor” of 90, which represented 90,000 kernels per 56-lb bushel. In terms of how kernel weight is usually measured in research, this would be equal to about 282 grams per 1000 kernels.Be aware that actual kernel numbers per 56-lb bushel among years or fields within years can vary significantly and is influenced by both growing conditions and hybrid genetics. Kernel weight among hybrids can easily vary from less than 65,000 kernels per 56-lb bushel to more than 100,000 kernels per 56-lb bushel. Kernel weight from year to year for the same hybrid can easily vary by 20,000 kernels per bushel or more simply due to variability in growing conditions during the grain filling period.Crop uniformity also influences the accuracy of any yield estimation technique. The less uniform the field, the greater the number of samples that should be taken to estimate yield for the field. There is a fine line between fairly sampling disparate areas of the field and sampling randomly within a field so as not to unfairly bias the yield estimates up or down.At each estimation site, measure off a length of a single row equal to 1/1000th acre. For 30-inch (2.5 feet) rows, this equals 17.4 linear feet.TIP:For other row spacings, divide 43,560 by the row spacing (in feet) and then divide that result by 1000 (e.g., [43,560 / 2.5] / 1000 = 17.4 ft).Count and record the number of ears on the plants in the 1/1000th acre of row that you deem to be harvestable.TIP:Do not count dropped ears or those on severely lodged plants unless you are confident that the combine header will be able to retrieve them.For every fifth ear in the sample row, record the number of complete kernel rows per ear and average number of kernels per row. Then multiply each ear’s row number by its number of kernels per row to calculate the total number of kernels for each ear.TIPS:Do not sample nubbins or obviously odd ears, unless they fairly represent the sample area. If row number changes from butt to tip (e.g., pinched ears due to stress), estimate an average row number for the ear. Don’t count the extreme butt or tip kernels, but rather begin and end where you perceive there are complete “rings” of kernels around the cob. Do not count aborted kernels. If kernel numbers per row are uneven among the rows of an ear, estimate an average value for kernel number per row.Calculate the average number of kernels per ear by summing the values for all the sampled ears and dividing by the number of ears.

Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Print Features Editor’s note: This feature originally appeared in the December issue of DS News.With mortgage default volumes at all-time historical lows, investors, servicers, and mortgage field services vendors continue to look for innovative technological solutions that add value.Technological innovation often comes at a cost, and in the current environment sometimes gets ignored or placed on the back burner due to costs constraints or capital budget requirements. In some sectors, people love to speak to technological innovation and enjoy throwing aroundtechnical buzzwords, but in the end do not want to pay for the latest technology.However, there is one technological development that is innovative in both its use and its cost effectiveness. The technology is known as a geotagging system, an application of a technology used in several different industries but which has been modified for use in the mortgage field services industry. The term “LOTO” stands for lockout/ tagout and is a procedure utilized in industries where machines or equipment prepared for service or maintenance often contain some form of “hazardous energy” that can cause harm to people in the area. “LOTO Safety” is all about making sure these types of hazards are controlled to prevent unplanned releases of harmful energy.In the mortgage field services industry, we are fortunate not to regularly encounter equipment containing “hazardous energy.” However, there are numerous circumstances where a similar technology and procedure such as LOTO would be of benefit.Consider examples such as incorrectly changing a lock at the wrong address, inspecting the wrong property, removing materials from an incorrect property location, or paying for services not performed. Lockout/tagout technological solutions can be expensive and not suitable for the mortgage field services industry in their current form. One example of the application of innovative, simple, low-cost, and effective control using geotagging is in the “passcode tag and app,” which brings a whole new level of compliance. Geotagging is a term for associating a piece of data with a specific location. Geotagging is the addition of geographical information, usually in the form of latitude and longitude coordinates, to websites, images, videos, smartphone transmissions, and various other data types and sources. Placed within a selfadhesive tag and powered by radio waves from a nearby smartphone, these tags can record nearby devices’ signatures and geolocations, then triggering an app server to record the event. Mark Clark, Co-Founder of Pass-Code Technology LLC, working with a Tanner Ewing, Founder of Tritium Technical Solutions, adapted one of Tritium’s product line and piloted a multifeatured geotagging tracking system within the mortgage field services space. The system allowed full monitoring of all activities on properties by using a combination of innovative asset tracking software and a flexible sensor with wireless capabilities. The simplicity, cost effectiveness, and reporting capabilities of this solution immediately presented intriguing possibilities for mortgage field services vendors. There is plenty of potential upside for clients to realize additional compliance benefits as well as avoiding costly errors and ensuring services are performed as they require.  Share Save December 13, 2019 1,619 Views Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago 2019-12-13 Mike Albanese Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Previous: Is the Net-worth Sweep at the GSEs Constitutional? Next: Investors Take Note: Residential Rental Spending Hit $4.5T About Author: Ed Mullen The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago  Print This Post WHAT IS THE GEOTAG? The tag itself is a 3.25 x 2-inch self adhesive tag. Since the tag contains no battery but is powered by radio waves from nearby smartphones, it has an unlimited lifespan and no maintenance is ever required. When a phone is close enough to power the tag, the circuit wakes up, records the nearby devices signature and geolocation, and triggers the associated server to record the event. The tag also sends a cryptographic key to the device, which verifies its identity with the server. The tag communicates with a custom app that is free to all users. The authorized person entering the property will hold a mobile device to the tag and be automatically logged in, receive address information, and, if required, receive a photo of the property to verify they are at the correct address. The tag will supply the user’s data and log the person in. At tag-in, the device records the precise geo coordinates of the property, and the exact time the user tags-in.The pilot demonstrated several real-time benefits. Vendors can always know who is present on properties, when they visit, and how long they remain. Imagine getting “pinged” when a vendor is on-site. This is a perfect time to call them and get a live update as to the property condition and discuss bid items if required or recommended in real time. Geotagging allows mortgage field service vendors as well as field inspectors, brokers, and valuation experts to be sure they are at the right property every time. Additionally, a 500-foot geofence is embedded within the software to complete assigned tasks if a vendor does not follow the checkout procedure. This a real benefit in that if a vendor forgot to check out, the system will do this automatically when they leave the property boundary. The geofence setting can be modified by the system administrator if necessary. The tag and associated software offers accurate analytics, exceptions reporting, and progressive data trending as well. All property records are stored safely in the “cloud.” There is no need to provide internal storage for these records, as data is safely encrypted in the cloud environment with limitless storage space. Tags can also be placed at as many property areas as desired. Multiple tags allow scan-in for multistory properties, basements, or all areas of a larger property (such as barns, outbuildings, or secondary structures).As mortgage field service providers, how many times do we see photos from the top of the stairs going into a basement? If it’s important to ensure a basement is fully inspected, then placing a geotag will allow you to confirm that the vendor went down into that area. How many times has discoloration been discovered in later inspections, but was missed earlier on due to hurried or incomplete prior inspections? Placing a tag strategically in remote property corners will ensure these areas aren’t missed.With geotags, there will be no confusion regarding date of service. This software reads cellular data for date and time with each scan at the property. This is tamper-proof technology providing an electronic time and date stamp for service visits. The tag and software also allows full integration capabilities with field services vendors’ system of record. These systems are updated instantly when activity happens on your property. Simple API (Application Programming Interface) allows integration with many background-verification companies. It would appear the most optimal time to install a tag and have it activated is at the initial securing. The client can determine how many tags are required and also their placement. Tags are placed at properties to ensure/confirm authorized vendors are performing services at the property and length of time vendor spends performing services. When a property is assigned to a vendor for the first time via the app, the vendor receives a welcome email. The email provides a link to download the app and directions for setting a personalized password, etc. Once the app is successfully installed, the vendor enters a username, password, and logs in. They then proceed assigning tags to the property. The process is quick and relatively simple. The vendor receives a work order and, on arrival at the property with passcode tags, installs the tag(s), activating and assigning it to the property within the app.The tags are printed on both sides to enable installation on a window/sliding door and to be visible from inside or outside of a property. One downside to avoid is excessive bending or creasing, as this can damage the internal components of a tag, rendering it inoperable. Tags will also not work if installed on a metal surface, as metal interferes with the communication signals.  Related Articles Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Subscribe The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago COST CONSIDERATIONS While a key driver will be volume, the pricing expectation for the mortgage field services sector is as follows: $22 per property for six months, including installation/monitoring and reporting. All the key features and benefits above would be available for less than $4 per month ($3.66). After six months, the monitoring fee is expected to be $18 for additional six months monitoring. Tags, along with the associated firmware, can be currently sourced at U.S. Hardware Supply. The app itself is free and available to download. The geotagging system promotes vendor accountability and improves billing accuracy, enabling you to only pay for verified services when a vendor actually “tags in.” The system also assures acceptable levels of service, as it validates time spent on the property. Background checks can also be available for all subcontractors, with subcontractor layering capabilities as well. In the end, geotagging has the potential not only to save clients money but also to add a whole new level of accountability and compliance, ensuring the right properties are being inspected, maintained, and visited in accordance with client/investor requirements.  Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Cost of Mortgage Innovation Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / The Cost of Mortgage Innovation Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days agolast_img read more
