Wanted to play the brand of cricket Mumbai Indians are known for: Rohit Sharma

first_imgMumbai Indians brought an end to Chennai Super Kings’ unbeaten run as they beat the defending champions by 37 runs on Thursday to register their second win of IPL 2019.Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma was a happy man after his side staged a superb fightback while to post 170 for 5, batting first, and then the bowlers did an outstanding job to restrict the dangerous Super Kings lineup to 133 for 8 at the Wankhede stadium.It was the 100th IPL win for Mumbai who had lost their previous game against Kings XI Punjab last month. They are now sixth in the points table but still have a long way to go to climb up the ladder. Chennai Super Kings dropped to second in the table after their first loss this season. Kings XI Punjab have taken the lead.”I think every game we play in the IPL is important. Having lost two games at the start, suddenly every match becomes important. We don’t want to keep that task of having to win many games at the end, it’s really difficult. We just wanted to play the brand of cricket Mumbai Indians are known for. We just kept ourselves in the game all the way through and those are good signs.”I thought 170 was a fighting total here because you never know. We knew that there was something in the pitch and if we could knock wickets early, things could work. That’s exactly what happened. We didn’t start off well with the bat but we finished really well,” Rohit Sharma said after the match.advertisementHardik Pandya was the star of Mumbai on Thursday night as he smashed 425 not out off 8 balls to fire the home side to a par score after they were reduced to 125 for 5 by the 18th over.The all-rounder also starred with the ball, taking 3 wickets for 20 runs from his four overs and finished as the joint-highest wicket taker in the match along with Lasith Malinga (3 for 34).”We didn’t start off well with the bat but we finished really well. With the ball, we were extremely clinical. To defend a 170 score at Wankhede, you need to be really good with the ball and we were with the fielding also being extremely efficient. That’s why I can’t pinpoint a single match-changing event, there were so many of them,” Rohit said.The Mumbai Indians skipper also praised debutant Jason Behrendorff, who took the wickets of Ambati Rayudu and Suresh Raina in quick succession to dent CSK early in their run chase.”Jason has been great for Australia with the new ball and we all know what he is capable of. Did the same for us and his spell early on set the tone. Rahul also seemed promising, bowled just the two overs but there was a reason for that as MS and Kedar play spin well. So, I went on with the pacers,” Rohit concluded.Mumbai Indians will next face the Sunrisers Hyderabad on April 6 after Chennai Super Kings host Kings XI Punjab on the same day.Also Read | IPL 2019: Kieron Pollard in awe of Pandya brothers after MI crush CSKAlso Read | MI vs CSK Highlights, IPL 2019: Mumbai Indians beat Chennai Super Kings by 37 runsAlso Read | IPL 2019: Clash of the Titans as Mumbai Indians host Chennai Super Kingslast_img read more

We kind of adopted her Toronto royal fans embrace Meghan Markle

first_imgTORONTO – A ticket for a minor traffic infraction and a sudden preponderance of black SUVs were Tiffany Babiak’s early clues that something was different about her normally quiet downtown neighbourhood.Then she learned the reason why: Prince Harry’s then-rumoured girlfriend Meghan Markle lived just a few blocks over and the area was crawling with security.As word of the royal relationship would eventually spread, so too, did media scrutiny of the tree-lined enclave of stately family homes next to the University of Toronto campus.The British media were especially hungry for any tidbit related to Prince Harry’s love life, but the royal couple had little to worry about, says Babiak.By and large, she says neighbours closed ranks and kept mum about anything they’d seen of the couple, ensuring they’d have as much privacy as possible under the circumstances.“Everyone got very protective of her because it was just like, it’s our neighbourhood, and we didn’t want these kind of paparazzi driving around and harassing anybody,” says Babiak.“It was funny, my (friend) one day went up to one of the SUVs which was idling … and she went up to the window and she was like, ‘Listen, I don’t know who you are but this is a residential neighbourhood so can you turn off your engines?’ And they were Prince Harry’s drivers.”Markle, who is set to marry Prince Harry on May 19, may be a California actress, but she’s an honourary Canadian in the eyes of many fans who followed her seven-season run on the Toronto-shot TV series “Suits.”“We kind of adopted her,” Babiak quips. “As far as I’m concerned she’s more Canadian than American.”And from all that appeared, Markle certainly embraced Toronto as her home away from home: volunteering at a local soup kitchen, vacationing with cast members over Canadian Thanksgiving, hobnobbing in downtown hotspots, and taking to social media to tout favourite restaurants and hangouts, biographer Andrew Morton writes in “Meghan: A Hollywood Princess.”By 2016, Markle was the promotional face of no less than two storied Canadian institutions — the 92-year-old retailer Reitmans, for which she designed a capsule collection of wardrobe staples, and the Christian charity World Vision Canada, to which she lent her burgeoning celebrity power to promote aid work in the developing world.Longtime royal watcher Patricia Treble says Markle’s ties to Toronto portrayed a sparkling version of the city that was young, stylish, and glamorous.And she provided an invaluable boost to little-known Canadian designers by wearing their clothes abroad, including coats by Mackage and Line the Label, and outfits by Erdem, Greta Constantine and Aritzia’s Babaton brand.“She really embraced it. She’s worn a lot of fashions from here, you’ve got Birks, you’ve got all the outerwear — and she’s worn that in Britain which has had a huge impact on the Canadian fashion market. A huge impact,” says Treble, a freelance writer and researcher who also helms the blog writeroyalty.com.But her ascendance as a Toronto tastemaker coincided with turmoil in her personal life, writes Morton, who notes Markle married producer Trevor Engelson in September 2011 just before shooting the second season of “Suits.”Her nine-month commitments in Canada meant long stretches of time apart, and it was a Vitamix blender that symbolized their growing divide.“She insisted that her favourite kitchen appliance from their West Hollywood home come with her to Toronto… even though it would have been just as easy to buy a new one,” he writes. “It sat on the kitchen counter in the Toronto house, a material reminder that her home was no longer in Los Angeles.”The marriage ended in 2013, and was followed by a two-year romance with local celebrity chef Cory Vitiello, further entrenching Markle in a circle of Toronto movers-and-shakers that included marketing and bridal consultant Jessica Mulroney.Hilda Andrade says she was a frequent follower of Markle’s social media posts, and was delighted to see her involvement with Reitmans.“I think she brought some freshness to that and some good colours. There was also clothing for those a little bit more chunky like myself and that actually would fit, it was nice,” says Andrade, who works at the University of Toronto and admits to being on the lookout for Markle.“She brought some good vibes to the area and (back) then a lot of people would say, ‘Meghan this,’ ‘Meghan that.’”Buzz only intensified when Prince Harry confirmed the royal romance in November 2016.By the time Toronto hosted Prince Harry’s beloved event for wounded military personnel, the Invictus Games, in September 2017, “things just went thermonuclear,” Treble says.“Because he was here for an extended period of time and the entire British royal press was here, and so everyone was waiting and trying to see: Would they go out in public? Would they be seen together? And when they were, that just became news that rocketed around the world,” she says.“I think what caught everyone off guard was just how quickly the romance has blossomed, how quickly they announced their engagement.”Even 10-year-old Zelda Armstrong got caught up in royal fever, recalling the time last spring she scrambled to a park in the Annex neighbourhood when she thought she caught a glimpse of the prince.The grade schooler says she and her friend took a moment to practise their curtsy (her friend also changed into heels) before dashing back to the park, only to find him gone.“He has red hair just like me,” says Armstrong. “I just find it’s interesting, what royals wear, and also I saw a video on YouTube about the royals and their kids.”Babiak says the city was certainly energized and is still reeling from the buzz of Markle’s time here.“Even those people who didn’t want to admit it were pretty excited about it,” she insists of the royal romance’s lasting impact.“It kind of makes life a little bit more interesting. You never know who you might run into when you take a walk.”Note to readers: CORRECTS spelling of Zelda Armstrong in para 26last_img read more

Saudi Arabia Seizes 48000 Cans of Heineken Beer Disguised as Pepsi

New York – Police in Saudi Arabia confiscated over 48,000 of Heineken beer smuggled into the country disguised as Pepsi-Cola cans.Saudi authorities at the Al Batha border between Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates stopped the truck carrying the contraband, according to several Saudi news reports.“A truck carrying what first seemed to be normal cans of the soft drink Pepsi was stopped and after the standard process of searching the products, it became clear that the alcoholic beers were covered with Pepsi’s sticker logos,” Al Batha border General Manager Abdulrahman al-Mahna said, according to Al Arabiya News. A video and several photos of the confiscation was provided by Saudi Customs showing an officer peeling the Pepsi sticker off to reveal the Heineken cans.At first sight, the Pepsi stickers in Arabic writing looked real as the disguises seemed authentic, yet when the authorities seized the pallets full of cans, they discovered the felony.The images have gone viral on social media networks when KSACustoms posted the news on their official Twitter account.Since the sale and consumption of alcohol in Saudi Arabia is strictly prohibited, smugglers come up with ingenious ways to get alcoholic beverages into the Muslim country.Punishment for smuggling alcohol in Saudi Arabia can include jail time and physical whippings to citizens the same as foreigners.In August 2014, a 74-year-old Briton was sentenced to jail time and physical punishment of 350 lashes after being arrested in Jeddah for possession of homemade wine.Despite the country’s harsh measures on alcohol, nationals and non-nationals find ways to possess and consume the banned substances.According to the World Health Organization, official figures of alcohol consumption in Saudi Arabia are 0.2 liters per adult, without accounting for illegal use.Last September, Saudi authorities arrested a man at the Bahrain border with 12 bottles of whiskey smuggled into his trousers and disguised under his Saudi robe.In addition, last April, more than 19,000 liquor bottles were seized when found hidden in a cargo between rich and tomato paste. read more

Government launches 10 year sovereign bond

This year’s budget shortfall may reach 6.9 percent of gross domestic product, compared with a target of 4.4 percent, amid higher expenses and legislative delays in approving tax proposals, Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake said Oct. 19. Sri Lanka’s rupee has weakened 7 percent this year and reached an unprecedented 141.38 to the dollar this month after the central bank on Sept. 4 stopped daily intervention in the currency market to conserve foreign-exchange reserves. Sri Lanka’s central bank kept interest rates unchanged for a sixth straight month in October and Governor Mahendran said the government will focus on boosting revenue in its budget due November. The Central Bank of Sri Lanka left its standing lending facility rate at 7.5 percent and standing deposit facility rate at 6 percent. Capital Economics predicts Sri Lanka will raise its lending rate to 8 percent in 2016. The economy grew 6.7 percent in April-June under a new calculation method.Sri Lanka needs fiscal consolidation through increased revenue via measures in its 2016 budget to be announced next month, IMF mission chief Todd Schneider said in Colombo on Sept. 18. The nation must continue its commitment to exchange-rate flexibility, Schneider said while voicing concern about its deteriorating balance of payments.“Sri Lanka’s external position remains vulnerable,” said Nicholas Yap, a Hong Kong-based credit analyst at Mitsubishi UFJ Securities (HK) Ltd. The 2015 current-account deficit is expected at 2.4 percent of GDP and foreign-exchange reserves are just enough to cover about 4 1/2 months of imports in the first half, he said. Finance Minister Karunanayake wasn’t immediately available for comment and government offices were shut for a holiday on Tuesday. Calls to the mobile phones of central bank Governor Arjuna Mahendran and Deputy Governor Nandalal Weerasinghe went unanswered.The indicated pricing of the bond is “somewhat high,” CT CLSA’s Fernando said. The government could have borrowed at a cheaper rate under an International Monetary Fund program, but may have opted against it as the money would come with conditions attached. Sri Lanka is selling global bonds for the second time this year as the government faces a wider budget deficit and a weaker currency, Bloomberg reported.The issuance is ranked B+ by Standard & Poor’s, its fourth-highest junk grade, and its size is yet to be decided, the ratings company said in a statement Tuesday. The sovereign is marketing 10-year notes and indicated it expects the securities to yield around 7 percent, according to a person familiar with the deal who isn’t authorized to speak publicly and asked not to be identified. The island nation sold $650 million of similar-maturity debt in May at a coupon of 6.125 percent. “They would be going for the issue now to plug the budget gap with revenues falling short,” said Sanjeewa Fernando, a strategist at CT CLSA Securities in Colombo. “This will help bolster the currency, at least in the short term, and also ease pressure on interest rates.” read more

Facebook stores up to 800 pages of personal data per user account

first_imgFacebook consistently reappears in the news with regards to privacy and the data it keeps on each of its users. For example, earlier this week an engineer working for the social network had to explain why Facebook tracks you even when you’re logged out.While Facebook insists it does not share your details with anyone, would it surprise you to find the amount of data stored about each user may in fact total 800 pages? It certainly surprised me.If you live in Europe, then you have the right under a European data protection law to request a copy of all information stored about you on any given service. In the case of Facebook, you can demand such information via the Personal Data Requests form.The website Europe versus Facebook (EvF) decided to share the data it received in response to such a request, and the sheer amount of information is quite staggering. In total, the example PDF document that has been shared online is 880 pages long.The document is split into sections, all of which can be seen listed in the image below:So far EvF has uploaded four such personal data documents with the page counts ranging from 129 right up to 880 pages. This must reflect the level of activity within an account, and therefore the amount of detail collected about an individual. In all cases, the personal information has been blanked by EvF and the names reduced to first initials to protect identities.If you take a quick look through the document (PDF), you can see just how much data Facebook stores about you and your activities.As well as the information you’d expect (name, address, date of birth, friends), there’s also unexpected data such as messages you have deleted, logging which events you decided not to attend as well as those you did, the last location you accessed Facebook from, a list of every single machine you ever logged into Facebook from, who has poked you, and there’s even fields for political and religious views even though they were empty.If you ever doubted how much, or how detailed the information stored about you by Facebook is, this is clear evidence the social network stores everything. Let’s hope they never have a security breach on the same scale as Sony did with PSN.Read more at Europe vs. Facebook and Forbeslast_img read more

Cohens photo with TV comedian fuels Trump tape speculation

first_imgTrump’s former attorney Michael Cohen and TV comedian Tom ArnoldPresident Donald Trump’s former long time personal attorney Michael Cohen retweeted a photo of himself with comedian Tom Arnold, who is working on a TV show to hunt down recordings of the president, fuelling speculation Friday that Cohen has secret tapes of Trump and is willing to share them.Last month, Vice Media announced that Arnold would be featured in a new show called “The Hunt for the Trump Tapes” and would investigate rumoured recordings of the president.Arnold told NBC News on Friday that he met with Cohen at the Lowes Regency Hotel in Manhattan and they discussed the new show.“We’ve been on the other side of the table and now we’re on the same side,” Arnold told NBC. “It’s on! I hope he (Trump) sees the picture of me and Michael Cohen and it haunts his dreams.”Arnold tweeted the photo with Cohen and the caption “I love New York” on Thursday night and Cohen retweeted it without comment.Later Friday, Cohen tweeted that he had a “chance, public encounter” in the hotel’s lobby and that Arnold asked to take a selfie.“Not spending the weekend together, did not discuss being on his show nor did we discuss @POTUS. #done #ridiculous,” Cohen tweeted.The idea for the show, which is set to air on Viceland later this year, came about after the release of the “Access Hollywood” tape during the 2016 presidential election, which captured Trump bragging about grabbing women’s genitals. In announcing the show last month, Vice said Arnold would “draw on his high-profile network of celebrity friends, entertainment executives, and crew members he’s met over more than 35 years in showbiz to dig for evidence on Trump’s most incriminating moments.”“I say to Michael: ‘Guess what? We’re taking Trump down together,’ and he’s so tired he’s like, ‘OK,’ and his wife is like, ‘OK, (expletive) Trump,’” Arnold told NBC.Arnold tweeted Friday to clarify that it was him who said he was teaming with Cohen to “take down” Trump and that Cohen was not being paid by Vice. Cohen replied, “Thank you Tom for correcting the record.”For more than a decade, Cohen was Trump’s personal lawyer and fixer, and he has long been a key power player in the Trump Organization and a fixture in Trump’s political life. He regularly threatened lawsuits against those who could pose a challenge to Trump, and a day before the FBI raided his office and hotel room, he tweeted, “I will always protect my POTUS.”Last week, Trump said he hadn’t spoken with Cohen “in a long time” and said, “He’s not my lawyer anymore, but I always liked Michael.”Cohen is under investigation by federal officials in New York. His home, office and hotel room were raided by the FBI in April as part of a probe into his business dealings. Investigators are also looking into a $130,000 payment made as part of a confidentiality agreement with porn actress Stormy Daniels, who alleges she had an affair with Trump in 2006, which Trump denies. She is suing both Cohen and Trump in an attempt to invalidate the nondisclosure agreement.Daniels’ former attorney, Keith Davidson, has sued Cohen and alleges he illegally recorded their telephone calls when Davidson represented Daniels. The lawsuit, filed earlier this month in Los Angeles, provided no proof to substantiate the claims and no details on exactly when the calls were recorded.last_img read more

Humans may have helped the decline of African rainforests 3000 years ago

first_imgDaintree Rainforest. Photo taken June 2005. Image: Wikipedia. Explore further This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Geochemist Germain Bayon and colleagues from the French Research Institute for Exploration of the Sea in Plouzané, France, analyzed marine sediment cores representing the last 40,000 years, taken from the mouth of the Congo River. The team looked for geochemical markers such as hydrogen, which correspond to rainfall levels that affect natural levels of erosion, and they also looked at potassium, which erodes quickly, and aluminum, which is more immobile.The core samples revealed evidence of severe chemical weathering starting around 1,500 BCE, a time that coincided with a period in which Bantu-speaking tribes arrived in the area, having migrated from regions near what is now the border between Nigeria and Cameroon. Chemical weathering in samples dating before this era was consistent with the changes in rainfall patterns, but by 1,000 BCE the weathering seen was decoupled from the rainfall evidence.Chemical weathering can be caused naturally by rainfall and normal erosion, but it can be accelerated by deforestation and intensive agriculture. Since the climate was changing at the time and becoming drier, a reduction in chemical weathering would ordinarily be expected rather than the peak actually found.The Bantu people were farmers and had developed iron-smelting techniques. Iron-Age Bantu archaeological sites have yielded ceramics, furnaces, tools, the remains of agricultural products, and a variety of iron artifacts. Bayon and colleagues suggest, in their paper published in the journal Science, that the farmers’ clearing of land for agriculture and their iron smelters, in addition to the changing climate, would explain the collapse of the rainforest and its replacement by grasslands and savannas in the region. The researchers were unable to estimate to what extent human activities were responsible, but they suggest the evidence from the sediment core shows human influence was “already significant.”The paper’s authors say their results were unexpected, but reveal that humans can have an enormous effect on the environment. While their findings do not necessarily contradict the prevailing theories, because the changing climate enabled the farmers to practice agriculture in the region, the Buntu farming practices themselves then changed the patterns of soil erosion.The study could have implications for the current situation in the world’s largest rainforests in the Amazon, where large areas are being deforested, largely for cattle or soy bean farms, and for industrial purposes and road construction. This, together with the current changes in climate, could also result in a rapid disappearance of remaining rainforests and their replacement by grasslands, with a massive resultant loss in biodiversity, and feedback changes to the local climate. Rainfall in the Amazon is already reducing, and there have been major droughts, notably in 2005 and 2010. Journal information: Science Citation: Humans may have helped the decline of African rainforests 3000 years ago (2012, February 10) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-02-humans-decline-african-rainforests-years.htmlcenter_img (PhysOrg.com) — Large areas of rainforests in Central Africa mysteriously disappeared over three thousand years ago, to be replaced by savannas. The prevailing theory has been that the cause was a change in climate, and the deforestation then enabled humans to increase their agricultural activities. A new study suggests that climate change alone cannot fully explain the transition and that human activities might be implicated. Deforestation reduces rainfall in Africa © 2011 PhysOrg.com More information: Intensifying Weathering and Land Use in Iron Age Central Africa, Science, DOI: 10.1126/science.1215400ABSTRACTAbout 3000 years ago, a major vegetation change occurred in Central Africa, when rainforest trees were abruptly replaced by savannas. The consensus is that the forest disturbance was caused by climate change. We show here that chemical weathering in Central Africa, reconstructed from geochemical analyses of a marine sediment core, intensified abruptly at the same period, departing significantly from the long-term weathering fluctuations related to the Late Quaternary climate. Evidence that this weathering event was also contemporaneous with the migration of Bantu-speaking farmers across Central Africa suggests that human land-use intensification at that time already had a significant impact on the rainforest.last_img read more

Physicists show selfcorrecting quantum computers are theoretically possible

first_img Journal information: New Journal of Physics (Phys.org) —Using exotic components such as color codes, new phases of quantum matter, and extra dimensions, a team of physicists has shown that it’s theoretically possible to construct a quantum computer that has the ability to correct itself whenever an error occurs. © 2013 Phys.org. All rights reserved. Explore further The third type is internally protected (or self-correcting) quantum computers, which is the most demanding type because they can correct themselves whenever an error occurs. The standard classical computers that we use today are self-correcting, which is one of the properties that makes them so successful. But developing a self-correcting quantum computer is much more difficult. Illustrating just how difficult it is, the physicists say that the task will amount to finding a new quantum state of matter. In their paper, the physicists theoretically showed how to construct a self-correcting quantum computer using a candidate for a new quantum state of matter called color codes. Color codes are a class of topological codes, which themselves have gained attention as a new phase of quantum matter due to their topologically ordered states. The physicists explain that color codes have very special transversality properties and a mathematical structure that is “colored.” In their model, the physicists constructed a color code in six and seven dimensions and explained how the code can be used to implement universal quantum computation that provides self-correction. To demonstrate the self-protection capabilities of the quantum computer, the physicists showed that it has a stable memory which, if exposed to a local noise for a short time, can preserve its quantum information.If a self-correcting quantum computer could be built, it would have advantages over externally protected quantum computers, Bombin explained.”External correction requires complex architectures involving enormous numbers of physical qubits to operate effectively on just a few logical qubits,” he said. “If we had at hand suitable quantum phases of matter to use as quantum registers, architectures would dramatically simplify. In fact, the usual problem with conventional experimental approaches to quantum computing is scalability. In the case of self-correcting quantum computers, the problem is to find a suitable phase, but scalability should be much more straightforward.”Very recently, several other papers have been published that also address the possibility of self-correcting quantum computers. While some of these proposals are similar to the one here, the physicists note that these proposals do not work at a fixed temperature, while the one presented here does. Although each proposal has its own advantages, operating at a fixed temperature makes their model the most demanding and realistic scenario, although much more work is needed to build such a computer.Among the challenges that the researchers face is lowering the dimensionality of their model.”A major goal is to explore theoretically quantum phases of matter in two and three spatial dimensions with the goal of finding candidates for self-correcting quantum memories,” Bombin said. “The self-correcting property is related to the confinement of excitations, and this may serve as a guide for research.” Playing quantum tricks with measurements Citation: Physicists show self-correcting quantum computers are theoretically possible (2013, June 11) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-06-physicists-self-correcting-quantum-theoretically.html Illustration of a cell that is part of a 3D color code lattice (or, as the physicists call them, “colexes”). In the paper, the physicists used analogous 6D color codes to design a self-correcting quantum computer. Credit: H. Bombin “The greatest significance of our work is showing that self-correcting quantum computing at a finite temperature is not impossible as a matter of principle,” physicist Héctor Bombin told Phys.org. Bombin was at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts, while performing the study and is currently at the Perimeter Institute in Waterloo, Ontario. “In fact, the original motivation came from claims to the contrary by other authors. We provide explicit constructions that can be checked directly, without numerical simulations.”Bombin and his coauthors have published a paper on their proposed self-correcting quantum computer in a recent issue of the New Journal of Physics. Error correction in quantum computers cannot be performed the same way as in classical computers, where information is stored multiple times for redundancy. Since copying quantum information is impossible due to the no-cloning theorem, physicists must find other ways to protect quantum information against errors.As Bombin and his coauthors explain in their paper, quantum computers can be classified into three categories based on their protection against errors. The first type is bare quantum computers, which do not have any type of error correction. These quantum computers have already been realized with ion traps and optical lattices. The second type is externally protected quantum computers, which can be acted upon externally in order to repair errors. Although this type has not been successfully implemented yet, theoretical studies indicate that there are no fundamental obstacles to reach them when quantum technologies are fully developed.

Big Data Bounty US Startups Challenge Agribusiness Giants

first_imgOctober 8, 2014 Chris Gould’s combine cab is loaded like the cockpit of a fighter jet he used to fly as he harvests soybeans in northern Illinois, steered by satellites, four video screens glowing with up to minute updates about his crop and the work’s progress.The setup, light years from what it was when the former Navy pilot started farming nine years ago, includes technology from Monsanto and Deere & Co.. But alongside them is an iPad running an app by tiny startup 640 Labs, boasting every bit as much savvy as the Goliaths’ latest offerings.He is gathering inch-by-inch yield data through sensor-packed and GPS-guided equipment, aiming to pinpoint the good soil on his roughly 3,000 acre (1,214 hectare)farm, where he may plant more densely next season, and the bad, where he may plant less or fertilize more.”The goal ultimately is to customize every input to every field and zone within the field, and to have enough data and analysis tools and models to make the best farming decisions possible,” Gould said.Big agriculture companies, such as Monsanto, Deere and DuPont Pioneer, have spent hundreds of millions of dollars on technologies that use detailed data on soil type, seed variety, and weather to help farmers grow more at a lower cost. But as the race for dominance on the farm heats up, a number of small tech startups are launching competing products.They are powered by many of the same data sources such as freely available rainfall totals from the National Weather Service and field boundaries gleaned from Google Maps. They also tap data gathered by farm machines and transferred via flash drive or beamed wirelessly to the cloud.Agriculture is the latest industry hoping to capitalize on Big Data, or using new technologies to gather and analyze large, complex, previously unwieldy data sets to anticipate behavior and results and boost efficiency.All hope their tools can help even the most productive farms squeeze out more grain, another 15 percent by some estimates, by telling farmers what to plant where and how densely or by informing them where to drive tractors to limit yield-sapping soil compression.Gould does not know yet which company’s product he will ultimately choose.Free For NowSeveral companies are offering basic packages for little to no cost with an eye on eventually signing farmers up for premium services such as planting prescriptions or grain marketing advice.Climate Corporation, bought by Monsanto last year for around $1 billion, is an early leader in the young market. Its free Climate Basic product used on more than 50 million acres (20.2 million hectares), or about 15 percent of total U.S. farmland. Around 1 million acres are under its premium service Climate Pro, free this year and $3 an acre next year.Among startups, Michigan-based FarmLogs has enrollments for its software product, also a free service, at around 15 percent of U.S. farms, triple what they had in January. The company, which raised $5 million in two funding rounds, declined to provide total acreage enrolled.640 Labs, which raised nearly $3 million in its latest funding, said its subscriber base has increased four-fold since the spring but declined to disclose acreage under management.Most companies are focused on launching products in the United States, the world’s largest grain producer and exporter, where detailed data on soils and weather is readily available. But they see growth opportunities in modern farming regions like South America, Australia and Europe.The industry is expected to grow fast. Monsanto called the Climate Corp acquisition its ticket to a $20 billion market. DuPont Pioneer forecast its farm data products would add $500 million to annual sales over the next decade.That growth potential and the low cost of scaling up software-as-a-service business have attracted venture capitalists like Mark Kvamme, co-founder of Drive Capital and an early investor in FarmLogs. The former Sequoia Capital partner called the startup a “disruptor,” much like Google was when his former company invested in the then No. 13 search engine.”Everyone’s got a computer in their pocket and connectivity to the net. You can now create software as a service, like FarmLogs has done on Amazon web services, and provide these services across the United States and across the world very efficiently,” Kvamme said.But the investments in an increasingly crowded field of farm data services are not without risk. Although providers say farmers can save money on inputs like fertilizer, it remains unclear how many growers will sign up for premium services with crop prices at the lowest in more than four years.While getting their products into farmers’ hands has been a challenge for start-ups that lack the reach and marketing budgets of their bigger rivals, their independence from big companies with their branded products can be a selling point.”We’ve very explicitly avoided partnerships with any agricultural brands that could sway us one direction or another. I don’t think that’s appropriate,” said FarmLogs co-founder and CEO Jesse Vollmar.The ability of small firms to respond quickly to customers’ requests and update products also gives them an edge.Climate Corp uses farmer feedback for product development, but the process can take up to a year or more, according to spokeswoman Christy Toedebusch. DuPont Pioneer is also open to feedback, but runs pilot trials before commercializing products, spokeswoman Jane Slusark said.In contrast, when Illinois farmer Steve Pitstick challenged 640 Labs to address production-sapping soil compaction caused by grain carts during harvest, 640 developed a method to map the cart’s weight and its path through the field, helping Pitstick to minimize the damage.”Our weapon is we can turn on a dime,” said 640 Labs co-founder and chief technology officer Craig Rupp. “We’re very nimble.”(Editing by Tomasz Janowski) This story originally appeared on Reuters Register Now » Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. 5 min readlast_img read more

Budget Help or hinder for tourism industry

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: K.W Budget Further to Tourism Australia announcing opportunities from the budget, Tourism and Transport Forum (TTF) suggests changes will affect Australia’s reputation as a destination.According to TTF, further analysis sees cuts to customs, airport policing charges and despite forecasts of significant increase in passenger movements, an increase in Passenger Movement Charge (PMC).TTF chief executive John Lee discussed passenger facilitation as an essential part of national security that is a critical experience for international visitors.”We will be saying to our overseas guests, ‘Welcome to Australia, please queue up over there for up to an hour while we decide if you can come in,” Mr Lee said of the first impression visitors to the country would get.”Not only that, but we’ll be charging them 17 per cent more for the privilege.”The Accommodation Association of Australia also feels the recent Federal Budget is a mixed bag for Australia’s accommodation industry.The Accommodation Association’s chief executive officer Richard Munro said as a result of the budget, uncertainty within the accommodation industry is likely to increase.“With the introduction of the carbon tax now less than two months away, operators of accommodation businesses were looking forward to relief through company tax cuts – but these are off the agenda in the short-term,” the CEO said.Also arguing for recalibration of the PMC, Mr Munro wants to see a higher level of support for domestic tourism, saying “this would have been far more preferable than a straight increase, as has been announced”.last_img read more
