Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) is extending the prevented plant crop reporting deadline for Ohio producers affected by spring flooding and excessive moisture.Producers without crop insurance or Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) coverage in certain counties now have until July 15, 2019, to report acres they intended to plant this spring but could not due to weather conditions. Counties include: Adams, Allen, Ashland, Athens, Auglaize, Belmont, Brown, Carroll, Clermont, Champaign, Clark, Columbiana, Coshocton, Crawford, Cuyahoga, Darke, Defiance, Delaware, Erie, Fairfield, Fayette, Franklin, Fulton, Gallia, Greene, Guernsey, Hancock, Hardin, Harrison, Henry, Highland, Hocking, Holmes, Huron, Jackson, Jefferson, Knox, Lawrence, Licking, Logan, Lorain, Lucas, Madison, Mahoning, Marion, Medina, Meigs, Mercer, Miami, Monroe, Morrow, Noble, Ottawa, Paulding, Perry, Pickaway, Portage, Putnam, Richland, Sandusky, Scioto/Pike, Seneca, Shelby, Stark, Summit, Trumbull, Tuscarawas, Union, Van Wert, Vinton, Washington, Wayne, Williams, Wood and Wyandot counties. The new deadline coincides with the July 15, 2019, FSA crop acreage reporting deadline that is already in place.“Producers need to report prevented plant acres to retain eligibility for FSA program benefits,” Leonard Hubert, State Executive Director said. “In many areas of the state, excessive moisture has made it challenging for producers to get into their fields to plant and this deadline extension provides reporting flexibility.”Normally, the prevented plant reporting deadline is 15 calendar days after the final planting date for a crop as established by FSA and the Risk Management Agency (RMA). The prevented plant reporting deadline extension to July 15 only applies to FSA and does not change any RMA crop insurance reporting deadline requirements.However, the extension does not apply to crops covered by FSA’s Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP). Producers should check with their local FSA office regarding prevented plant provisions for NAP-covered crops.Producers are encouraged to contact their local FSA office as soon as possible to make an appointment to report prevented plant acres and submit their spring crop acreage report.

In May, The Wall Street Journal reported on BLS data indicating more workers in general were quitting their jobs.“During the recession many companies had to initiate hiring freezes, postpone new technology implementations and simply ‘do more with less,’” Technisource president Michael Winwood said in a press release. IT workers, like many other workers, could be harboring resentment for their current employers and/or be suffering from burnout.Enterprise IT departments should be particularly concerned about turnover. Although overall job growth in the US is stagnant, IT spending is projected rise, so IT workers confidence may not be misplaced. Before the recession, enterprises faced staffing shortages in IT and if demand for IT workers picks up, it will be workers who have the upper hand. Much was written before the recession speculating as to the reasons for the shortage of skilled IT workers. Blogger Dan Morrill wrote about the poor quality and high cost of education in the US, and the precarity of IT careers (this rant drives the precarity point home).But Linda Musthaler, writing for Network World, pointed to the numbers of unemployed but highly skilled IT workers looking for employment even before the recession:There’s no shortage of smart, employable IT workers. There is a shortage of flexible employers who are willing to hire people who don’t match an exact, niche profile or have a very specific skill or type of experience. There is a shortage of companies willing to invest in the training and development of enthusiastic and committed employees.If workers can’t find the training they need outside the work place, and enterprises can’t find the employees that meet their criteria, there’s a clear compromise: better internal training programs. Enterprises will need to invest more in employees to retain a competitive edge in the future.

That’s one measure of Straube’s stature as a trusted voice in the building industry, particularly in the green building industry.One of five principals at Building Science Corporation and an associate professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Waterloo, in Waterloo, Ontario, Straube doesn’t seem to have an “off” button when it comes to analyzing and articulating what it takes to design and construct buildings that not only perform well upon completion but that also require minimal maintenance.“Exemplary work”It seems fitting, then, that Straube, co-author of the 2005 book Building Science for Building Enclosures, was honored this month at the International Builders’ Show, in Orlando, Florida, with the Lifetime Achievement Award in Building Science Education from the National Consortium of Housing Research Centers (NCHRC).Cornell Professor and NCHRC Chairman Joseph Laquatra presented the award as part of the Energy Value in Housing Awards event at IBS.“John has been deeply involved in the areas of building enclosure design, moisture physics, and whole building performance as a researcher, educator, and consultant,” Laquatra said, adding that Straube’s “work in teaching building science is exemplary and is preparing a generation of engineers to produce buildings that are energy efficient, healthy, comfortable, and durable.” ARTICLES AND PODCASTS BY JOHN STRAUBEComparing Passivhaus Standard Homes to Other Low-Energy HomesThe History Of InsulationHow Air Affects a House (1)How Air Affects a House (2)How Heat Moves Through BuildingsWhy Does Green Building Matter?
