Cricket West Indies (CWI) Selection Panel has called up Obed McCoy for the second and third matches in the Sandals Twenty20 International Series against England.McCoy, the 22-year-old left-arm fast bowler, replaces Andre Russell, who has been forced to pull out after a recurrence of a long-standing knee problem.The left-arm fast bowler will join the squad in St Kitts, where the matches will be played on Friday and Sunday at the Warner Park. First ball daily is 16:00h (3pm Jamaica Time/8pm GMT).McCoy, blessed with pace, control and one of the best slower balls in the business, has long been seen as one of the most exciting bowling prospects in the Caribbean. He made his international debut in India in October and, while he has played just three First-Class games, impressed with St Lucia Stars in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) and for West Indies B in the Global T20 Canada.He played for the University of West Indies Vice Chancellor’s XI in the limited-overs warm-up match in Barbados in February and, having flown into St Kitts on Wednesday, is expected to be available for the final two matches of the T20I series against England.
BERLIN – At a laboratory in Germany, volunteers slide into an MRI machine and perform simple tasks, such as deciding whether to add or subtract two numbers, or choosing which of two buttons to press. They have no inkling that scientists in the next room are trying to read their minds – using a brain scan to figure out their intention before it is turned into action. In the past, researchers had been able to predict what physical movements will be made. But researchers at Berlin’s Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience and Leipzig’s Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences claim they have now, for the first time, detected people’s decisions about how they would later do a high-level mental activity, such as adding or subtracting. Still in its initial stages, the techniques may eventually have wide-ranging implications for everything from criminal interrogations to airline security checks. That alarms some ethicists who fear the technology could be abused by authorities, marketers or employers. Tanja Steinbach, a 21-year-old student in Leipzig who participated, found the experiment a bit spooky but wasn’t overly concerned about the civil-liberties implications. “It’s really weird,” she said. “But since I know they’re only able to do this if they have certain machines, I’m not worried that everybody else on the street can read my mind.” Researchers have long used magnetic resonance imaging to identify different types of brain activity, and U.S. scientists have recently developed brain scans designed for lie detection. But outside analysts say the German work led by Dr. John-Dylan Haynes is groundbreaking. “The fact that we can determine what intention a person is holding in … mind pushes the level of our understanding of subjective thought to a whole new level,” said Dr. Paul Wolpe, a University of Pennsylvania psychiatry professor not connected to the study.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Jerry Hagstrom DTN Political Correspondent and Chris Clayton DTN Ag Policy EditorWASHINGTON (DTN) — Congress returned Monday amidst some of the greatest uncertainty for agriculture in decades, with corn and soybean planting behind schedule, commodity prices low, and trade conflicts with China and Mexico worse than before the Memorial Day congressional recess.The House voted early Monday evening on a $19.1 billion supplemental appropriations bill that includes aid to farmers and ranchers who experienced hurricanes and wildfires in 2018 and flooding this year. The measure passed 354-58 on June 3.The vote comes as the Missouri River again is rising because of continual rain throughout the basin. The Arkansas River is also inundating farm ground in Oklahoma and Arkansas, and locks and dams on the Mississippi River remain shut down as the Corps of Engineers looks for ways to relieve pressure on the system.The Senate passed the disaster bill before leaving for the recess. The House attempted to pass the bill by unanimous consent, but objections from three Republican House members stopped those efforts.The bill — technically the Senate Amendment to H.R. 2157 sponsored by House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita Lowey, D-N.Y. — is listed on the suspension calendar and expected to pass easily. President Donald Trump is expected to sign it, although he left on a trip to the United Kingdom and France on Sunday evening.The bill specifically includes just over $3 billion to pay for farmer losses from disasters that occurred in 2018 and 2019. That is expected to cover Midwest farmers who lost stored grain this spring during flooding along the Missouri River basin.The disaster legislation also waives adjusted gross income caps for farmers under the Market Facilitation Program, a move that opens up trade aid to a larger group of higher-income farmers. The provision will become more important to those producers now that the Trump administration is planning a second year of Market Facilitation Program payments.Disaster aid may help farmers recover from past losses, but USDA continues to show historic delays in corn and soybean plantings across farm country. Because of that, the Food and Environment Reporting Network reported Monday, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue hopes to have a “definite answer” by the end of this week whether MFP payments will be offered to farmers on prevented planting acres. FERN reported Perdue declined to offer other details of the new MFP payment rules.Under the disaster bill, several other USDA programs get specific funding to help farmers, ranchers and forests recover from disasters. The Emergency Conservation Program receives $558 million and the Emergency Watershed Protection Program receives $435 million.The bill also provided $600 million more supplemental disaster nutrition aid for Puerto Rico.For communities affected by disasters, the bill includes $600 million for the Economic Development Administration to provide development grants.For the Army Corps of Engineers, the bill includes under multiple accounts just under $2.5 billion total for various flood and hurricane controls, including repairs and emergency operations, as well as maintenance and natural disaster repairs.The bill also includes language requiring USDA to create a crop insurance program for hemp, starting in the 2020 crop year. Congress removed hemp as a controlled substance under the 2018 farm bill, and now as many as 45 states have some form of legislation to allow for hemp production.While high levels of precipitation are the primary factor in delayed planting, Farm Bureau also said farmers may take into account the Trump administration’s announcement that it will distribute another round of MFP due to the continuing trade conflict with China.“While USDA has not announced the rates, many farmers who may have otherwise taken the prevented planting option may look to plant something in order to participate in the MFP program as the original announcement stated that payments would only be paid on planted acres,” Farm Bureau said.Jerry Hagstrom can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.orgFollow him on Twitter @hagstromreportChris Clayton can be reached at email@example.comFollow him on Twitter @ChrisClaytonDTN(AG/CZ)© Copyright 2019 DTN/The Progressive Farmer.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Matt Hutcheson, CCA, Product Manager, Seed Consultants, Inc.As the 2019 growing season continues, producers across the Eastern Corn Belt will begin put more thought towards their production plans and management decisions for the upcoming season. One challenge that has affected corn yields in our sales territory over the past few years is foliar disease, especially Northern Corn Leaf Blight. Anyone who attended one of our Winter Agronomy Meetings heard a discussion of what conditions promote diseases (Nothern Corn Leaf Blight and Gray Leaf Spot) and possible management options. You might ask, “What are the important management options that will protect yield from leaf diseases?” Although some of the important management practices have already been performed (crop rotation, hybrid selection, and tillage) growers still have opportunities to protect their corn from disease as discussed in the following list:• Scouting: Scouting fields is an important part of a management plan. Walk corn fields right before tassel emergence to determine disease presence and severity.• Identify Which Diseases are Present: Having the ability to identify specific diseases is a critical piece in managing GLS and NCLB. NCLB symptoms are brown or tan cigar-shaped lesions, ranging from one to six inches in length. GLS symptoms are tan or gray rectangles with parallel or straight sides, ranging from half and inch to four inches in length.• Effective use of fungicides: Whether or not to apply fungicides has become a more challenging question with lower commodity prices. Many factors must be considered when determining if a fungicide application is necessary, including: hybrid resistance, disease severity, stage of crop development, expected yield benefit, etc.While we don’t know if the weather for the 2019 growing season will be conducive for development of yield-reducing disease, we do know that there is plenty of disease inoculum in crop residue from the 2018 growing season. Should the right patterns of weather develop, producers in the Eastern Corn Belt could be looking at another year where leaf diseases threaten corn yields. As always, if diseases become a problem Seed Consultants’ knowledgeable sales staff and agronomy team are available to help customers determine where and when to apply fungicides.
The Central Bureau of Investigation on Friday filed a chargesheet against BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar for falsely framing in an arms case the father of the minor girl from Unnao who accused him of rape.Nine others were named in the CBI chargesheet, including three policemen — then station officer of Makhi police station Ashok Bhaduria, sub-inspector Kamta Prasad Singh and constable Amir Khan.The MLA’s brother Atul Singh Sengar and their aides Shailendra Singh, Vineet Mishra, Birendra Singh, Ram Sharan Singh and Shashi Pratap Singh have also been named. The MLA is accused of framing the minor’s father in an Arms Act case in collusion with the local police.The CBI had on April 12 registered a case regarding the matter under criminal conspiracy and various sections of the Indian Penal Code — 166, 167, 193, 201, 218 — and Section 3/25 of the Arms Act.The minor girl’s father died during judicial custody in April allegedly of injuries suffered during an assault by the MLA’s brother and his aides. After the assault, he had been arrested by the Unnao police for the illegal possession of arms and sent to judicial custody on the complaint of the MLA’s side.This is the third chargesheet filed by the CBI in the case and the second against the MLA who was on Wednesday named as an accused in the rape case. The legislator from Bangermau in Unnao faces charges under Sections 363 ( kidnapping), 366 (abducting and inducing a girl), 376 (punishment for rape) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code and also relevant sections of the stringent POCSO pertaining to sexual assault.The CBI on July 7 had named Atul Sengar in the chargesheet in connection with the death of the minor’s father. Other accusedThe other accused in the alleged murder case are Vineet Mishra, Birendra Singh alias Bauwa, Ram Sharan Singh alias Sonu and Shashi Pratap Singh, all residents of Sarai Thok Makhi in Unnao district. They face charges of murder and criminal intimidation, among others.While the CBI did not name the MLA in the death case of the minor’s father, it said it was investigating his role.
