But disappointed on the fact i ordered darkest brown, but it’s more of a red than brown. Since it’s synthetic hair it does tangle easily however it’s a simple job of just being careful with it. I wear one of these when i put my hair up in a pony tail or braid, adds a really nice thickness and weight to it, not mention length. Although i would recommend getting two of these if you want it to look thick enough if you plan on wearing your hair down. Over all great deal for the price. Totally chuffed with this hair will definitely be buying more of it. This arrived really quickly and looked lovely when my daughter opened up the package, very excited however after two wears the ends frayed which made her look like she had split ends and you couldn’t comb it.

Planter Field Day May 31

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Weather conditions have delayed some farmers from getting into their fields to plant this spring, so more growers are looking to new technologies to help them speed up the planting process.With each day growers aren’t able to get into their fields to plant due to cold or wet soil conditions, more questions are arising as to how the planting delays will impact yields, said Mary Griffith, an Ohio State University Extension educator.“While growers always are focused on getting their crops in on time, this year many farmers are especially concerned about how a narrow planting season such as this will impact yields,” Griffith said. “Some growers who planted early were negatively impacted by late frost and have had to replant some fields — in some cases some of those farmers hadn’t even gotten all their fields planted the first round before they had to replant.“As a result, many growers are looking at planters, new technologies and yield impact. Whether it be questions on seed singulation and uniform spacing to questions on variable rate seeding and fertilizer application, many growers want to know how precision planter technology can increase the speed and accuracy of planting.”Growers can learn more about precision planters during a Planter Field Day May 31. The event is from 8 to 11 a.m. at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center, 1782 state Route 38 NW in London. The event is free and open to the public.The program will offer participants the opportunity to see corn and soybeans planted using the ExactEmerge planting system at the site. During the field day, growers will be able to evaluate crop stands and learn more about precision planting.For more information on the field day or to register, contact Griffith at 740-852-0975 ext. 13 or [email protected] The deadline to register is May 27.

Ohio’s specialty crops had a great 2016

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ohio is home to a myriad of specialty crops, each having their own peculiarities with regard to the optimum weather and growing conditions.Brad Bergefurd is an Extension educator specializing in agriculture and horticulture. He works with a wide array of Ohio’s specialty crops. As a result, he always has an interesting take on the growing season. Here are some of his thoughts about 2016 as the growing season comes to its conclusion.“We’ve had some of the best yields in strawberries and asparagus. We did have a few late-season frost events in certain pockets in Ohio last spring, but even folks who got some of that damage still had pretty good strawberry yields overall both with matted and plasticulture. There was one picking of asparagus where there was damage and it had to be mowed. Then, rolling into the planting season, things were a little delayed because we were so wet early on. It was a little tough getting planted but once we did, it for the most part was good,” Bergefurd said. “There were quite a few places with dry weather, but it is better to grow this produce in a dry season than in a wet season, especially where it is irrigated. Some of the processing acres are on non-irrigated ground, but most of our fresh market acreage throughout the state is irrigated. It is easier to make it rain than to stop the rain. We had many pockets that were really dry but for the most part with irrigation yields were great, and quality was great.”The warm September and early October kept the good growing conditions going strong. Before the recent frosts growers were picking the whole gamut of crops — peppers, tomatoes, squash, tomatoes, pickles, sweet corn and green beans in October.“Things are still growing really well. We are still getting a lot of good development on our matted row strawberries. The fall planted plasticulture strawberries are really looking good,” he said in mid-October. “If this keeps up we’re looking at a Carolina fall and it is setting up for a good harvest next spring for strawberries. It can turn quick in Ohio, but if this continues it will be great. On plasticulture we use floating row covers for winter protection for the strawberries. We could get major damage in the bramble crops if it drops from 80 degrees to 20 degrees really fast but it doesn’t look like that will happen.“Strawberries especially produce the majority of the flower buds that get initiated in the fall. As long as we keep these temperatures, that plant is continuously making flower buds. I think we’re setting up for a really good strawberry crop if this continues. When it is warm, plasticulture strawberries could initiate some runner formations in the fall. If that happens we need to pinch those back but we are really not seeing that yet. Right now, all of their energy is going to root development and setting buds which is what we want.”Other types of berries also had a solid growing season in 2016.“For the bramble crops and berries those crops were all good yields and quality. We are currently fighting the spotted wing drosophila, which is a fruit fly that always causes havoc on the late season fruit crops. That is about the only issue we had on the fall bearing brambles and blackberries. We didn’t see really any winter damage and we needed a good blackberry crop since we lost the previous two due to polar vortex events. We didn’t get any reports of economic losses from that late frost last spring,” Bergefurd said. “There were not really any more disease issues than we normally have. Downy mildew is always an issue in Ohio and we had a few pockets of that on hops and cucurbits. The high heat in August caused some blooms to abort and we are seeing a little reduction in the harvest now because of that.”Ohio has a fair number of pumpkin acres that also saw good yields in 2016.“Some areas were too wet until mid-June and they got pumpkins planted pretty late, but the heat kicked in and those heat units really ramped up the maturity so we were right on schedule. I heard a few farmers reporting phytophthora issues on pumpkins. That moisture does spike those issues,” he said. “Yields were higher than usual but fruit size may be down a little because of the heat. We saw maybe a 10% reduction in fruit size. What would have been an 18- to 20-pound pumpkin most years might have come in at 15 or 16 pounds this year, but the yields have been phenomenal.”There has been a growing interest in Ohio hops production and yields have been climbing, particularly in 2016.“Hops had downy mildew, which happens in a wet or dry year but we really didn’t have too many issues. The areas that were in drought stress did have some spider mite issues. We are getting used to watching for spider mites when it gets dry,” he said. “The quality was great this year and most of the hops farmers have irrigation. Farmers harvesting mature four- and five-year-old fields are reporting the best yields ever this year.”The heat really pushed the hops crop along this year.“With more heat units this year the harvest for hops was two to three weeks early depending on where you were in the state. We usually harvest around Labor Day and we were harvesting the third week of August and even in early August down south,” Bergefurd said. “The early harvest threw the brewers off a little but the growers were communicating that all along with their brewers so they were on board for the harvest.”The microbrewery boom in Ohio that is driving demand for local hops also has some farms looking into growing barley for malting.“The malting barley crop is a new specialty crop we are working on. Yields were very good with that, quality was good and demand is high from the malt houses we have in Ohio. There is a lot of interest,” Bergefurd said. “This was the first big acreage we had in Ohio this year. We are planting this fall and we plant spring varieties as well in March and April.”Along with the productive growing season, 2016 was a year of strong prices and demand.“Demand was up there and both prices for retail and wholesale were up there and holding their own. Market demand was great in Ohio. We have great retail marketing opportunities for smaller acre farms and we have strong wholesale opportunities with produce auctions in the state for farms who want to do wholesale but aren’t big enough to sell to a grocery chain. Those auctions have had great demand and prices all around the state this year. Then you have the larger wholesale demand with grocery distribution centers around Ohio. There is great demand for that too. We formed a southern Ohio pumpkin growers cooperative and this was the first year that they marketed as a group with really good results,” Bergefurd said. “There are all sorts of marketing opportunities here in Ohio and something for everyone that is willing to do their homework and produce the quality, products and volume that those markets want. There are not many issues for marketing right now for quality products. ‘Buy local’ is the big thing right now. Consumers are driving that and making these opportunities for Ohio’s produce growers.”last_img read more

The Key To Social Network Success: Rip Off Pinterest?

first_imgYour social network has fallen from its 2006-era prime. You need to reposition yourself and regain the attention of users who have long since moved on. What do you do? Take a page from the Pinterest playbook.This week is apparently the week to do exactly that. First, MySpace previewed its next iteration, which moves away from traditional profiles and social streams in favor of a grid-based layout showcasing media content shared by users. Sound familiar?The very next day, StumbleUpon launched a beta redesign that also bears a visual similarity to Pinterest. MySpace and StumbleUpon aren’t the first companies to take cues from Pinterest’s design approach. The design of the explosively popular social scrapbooking service has been widely mimicked in recent months. Its tiled layout, based on the widely-used Masonry jQuery layout plugin, has begat countless WordPress and Tumblr themes.Sites using this visual approach are too numerous to name. StumbleUpon and MySpace stand out because they are both once-beloved social networks from a half decade ago that have declined in usership and relevance. Meanwhile, Pinterest has become the latest social media phenomenon, even as many in the broad public struggle to understand why on Earth they should use it. It’s hard to say how long Pinterest’s growth will last or whether it will find a viable business model, but for now its success has given other contenders in the social space something to emulate, sometimes shamelessly.Take Chill, for example. The social video-sharing service originally sprang out of the group-listening hype generated last summer by music startup Turntable.fm. In early 2012, the company shifted its focus from real-time group video watching and content discovery. Today, Chill bears a striking resemblance to Pinterest, from its Masonry-style layout to the placement of its dark pink, handwritten-looking logo.  The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos People are ripping off Pinterest’s design for one simple reason: it works. In 30 months (much of which was a closed beta period), the service’s subscriber list has ballooned to more than 20 million users who have generated 1.9 billion monthly page views and spend an average of about 15 minutes pinning and browsing. In terms of registered users, that’s not quite Instagram-level growth, but it’s still remarkable. A feature in the September issue of Fast Company explains the origin of Pinterest’s design: As they sketched out Pinterest, [cofounders] Silberman and Sharp cast aside many then-predominant orthodoxies of Web design. Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and many other content-driven websites were organized around “feeds,” lines of text or images that ran from top to bottom by time… The idea was to remove the rigid organizational strictures that the Web imposed – directories, timestamps, pagination – and replace them with a grid of images that would feel more like visiting a store or a museum. The result was what we see on Pinterest today: pleasing images of attractive people, delicious-looking confections, stylish accessories and awe-inspiring scenes laid out on a fixed-width grid with no bottom. That infinite scroll is part of what makes Pinterest so addictive – and helps boost the coveted time-on-site metric. Unlike most hot social startups, Pinterest even has the beginnings of a non-advertising-based business model within reach. The service is already driving tons of traffic to online retailers as its users lust after many of the products pinned there. The company is not officially implementing any particular monetization strategy yet, but many of the components of one are sitting there waiting to be picked up and built into a cash cow. Of course, half of that potential future equation is a massive user base, which Pinterest has. Other sites can borrow from its design all they want, but whether or not they can win over users on such an immense scale is another story altogether.  Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Related Posts Tags:#Pinterest#web Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification john paul titlow A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Auditlast_img read more

Yelp Reports Q4 Losses As Local Gets More Crowded Than Ever

first_imgRelated Posts Images via Yelp Yelp just reported its fourth quarter earnings and things aren’t looking that sunny for the stalwart local discovery site. In Q4 Yelp raked in $41.2 million in revenue, losing $.08 cents per share for a net loss of $5.3 million, an outlook a bit grimmer than projected losses of $.03 per share. Still, the company exceeded analyst estimates, which pegged the Yelp to report $40.2 million in revenue. The company’s stock predictably dipped in after-hours trading by around 3%.Yelp should own local. But it doesn’t. The company, founded in the mobile dark age of 2004, is being assaulted on some major fronts. There’s Foursquare of course, but the biggest threat is Facebook’s renewed interest in local, which the company will be building out in the coming months in the form of a feature called “Nearby.”Nearby is a big threat to Foursquare too, if Facebook doesn’t fumble the reboot. You might recall Facebook Places, which was shuttered in 2011, well before Facebook commanded the mobile savvy and the mobile products that it does now. Still, Yelp did have a little good news: Its web portal hit 100 million unique visitors in January 2013. The company also reported that reviews were up 45% in 2012 and its reach on mobile devices grew by 60%. (You can find more Yelp stats in the infographic below.) The heat is on to see who can monetize mobile the fastest – but clearly Yelp just isn’t quite there yet.

Haryana to implement NRC as well hints CM Manohar Lal Khattar

first_imgAfter Assam, Haryana may introduce the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in the state, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar hinted Sunday, without elaborating on any definite plans on how and when it shall be done. Khatter, who is seeking his second term as Haryana chief minister, met several imminent personalities Sunday, including state’s former Human Rights Commission’s chairman Retd. Justice H S Bhalla and ex-Navy chief Admiral Sunil Lamba, as part of BJP’s nationwide Jan Sampark programme ahead of the state elections. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details Speaking to the media persons outside Bhalla’s Sector 16 residence in Panchkula, Khattar said, “Justice Bhalla had headed the Haryana Human Rights Commission besides holding various other positions. These days, he is working on NRC. I also said that we shall implement NRC in Haryana and sought his cooperation on how to implement it. He [Justice Bhalla] has also suggested that Haryana should also have a Law Commission. We shall examine that too and if people get benefitted with this, we shall also constitute one in the state.” Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday Talking to The Indian Express, Justice Bhalla said, “Yes, I suggested the Chief Minister two things – NRC and State Law Commission in Haryana. NRC is only in Assam, currently. So, he [CM] was of this view that in Haryana, there should also be NRC. Residents should be given a card that they are the genuine residents of the state. It was a passing reference so far. “I think the Model Code of Conduct shall also be imposed tomorrow. Thus, they cannot work on this [NRC]. But once the BJP returns to power, then, of course, things might come upon this. As of now, saying much on this is premature. But, it was his desire that Haryana should also have NRC so that people should not face any problems. It will be a card like Aadhaar card, but a separate one,” he said. Haryana Vidhan Sabha polls are scheduled next month. In a statement issued later this evening, Khattar said that state government was already in process of issuing family id-cards to people of Haryana. The same database shall also be used for the implementation of NRC in the state.(Inputs from The Indian Express)last_img read more
