There was some N deficiency and more disease pressure on the outside of the field, though overall low disease levels. The fields was at R2 as it had a late start. The field is fair but pretty good compared to surrounding fields, but it is awfully late. It will make a crop but it will be wet and has a ways to go. It had a shallow kernel depth and a yield of 148 bushels per acre.Soybean Summary: Soybeans looked good to excellent and the stand was even. No disease or insect pressure. Population was 200,000 to 217,000. Canopy height was 32 to 34 inches and drilled at 7.5 inches. Field is dried and cracking and will probably yield in the mid-40s. Plants were not branching much and the nodes were fairly far apart with first node six inches off the ground.Williams Co. cornWilliams Co. cornWilliams Co. beans and dry soilDefiance County (West Central)Corn Summary: Corn plants were generally pretty short and showing significant N stress. There was little disease and insect pressure. The ears were very small and in R1 or R2 stage, very delayed for this time of year. The field was maybe a bit worse than surrounding fields and was rated poor. The yield estimate was 113 bushels per acre.Soybean Summary: Good even canopy at 23 inches tall. Drilled beans. The first node was four inches up and there was no disease pressure. We saw some limited feeding on the leaves. The nodes were closer together and the plants had a bit more branching than the Williams County field.The population was around 230,000 with a yield potential maybe in the low 40-bushel range with fair potential. We have been seeing much more prevented planting than we expected, especially in corn stalk ground going to beans.Defiance Co. cornDefiance Co. cornDefiance Co. beansDefiance Co. beans Henry County (Central)Corn Summary: Stand was at 32,5000 and relatively even despite reported extreme early season variability. Field was planted on May 3. No insect pressure and very little disease pressure. A little bit of NCLB. The best field of the day and fairly representative of the area. Things have really improved with better weather lately. At the R3 stage, though development is variable, and by far the furthest along of any field we have seen. Yield estimate 159 bushels.Soybean Summary: There was some variable height across the canopy and good population through out. Planted in 15-inch row spacing and very good nodulation on the roots. The canopy height was around 33 inches and the first node was four inches off the ground and 2.5 inches between the nodes. Little to no disease and insect pressure. Pod set was all the way to bottom with many three bean pods. Yield potential is good, maybe 50 bushels, and the best we have seen so far.Henry Co. cornHenry Co. cornNodules on Henry Co. beans.Henry Co. beansWood County (Southwestern)Corn Summary: Uneven stands with flood damage, poor stalk quality, tops falling out, high disease pressure and N loss. It was a non-GMO field planted May 2. There were leaves turning purple throughout the plant. Some ears almost at dent in mature field of the day. Heavy European corn borer feeding, tip back, zipper ears, inconsistent stand, and generally poor field with many problems. The high population of 35,000 is only thing saving yield potent in this extremely variable field. One of worst looking fields in the area. Yield estimate is 136 bushels.Soybean Summary: Good but uneven height from 24 to 36 inches tall. The first node was 3.5 inches off the ground with2 inch node spacing. Rain will really help this field. Population of 156,000 with no disease or insect pressure. Field was sprayed late, after wheat harvest. Overall good yield potential here with pods filling and probably the best field of the day — one of the better fields in the immediate area.Wood Co. cornWood Co. beansWood Co. beansHancock County (West central)Corn Summary: This was 110-day corn planted April 30 at 34,000 population in 15-inch rows. We counted 33,000 to 34,000 population. Has had sulfur applied at planting and sidedressing. Light disease pressure and no insect damage. On the lighter ground ear fill was marginal with some tip back but on better ground filled to the end. The good ground had 16 rows around and averaged 205 bushels. Excellent field and the best of the trip so far. Yields were 135 on the poorer ground. Yield estimate 200 bushels.Soybean Summary: Even and consistent stand with canopy height at 41 inches. They were very bushy with many branches. The first node height was two inches and the first pod was at six inches. There were some four bean pods with 2.5 inches between the nodes. No disease pressure but there was some Japanese beetle pressure worth watching. There had been some foliar applications of manganese, boron, and NPK. The population was 126,000 and was planted at 140,000 population. Best field of the morning for soybeans — good to excellent.Hancock Co. cornHancock Co. cornHancock Co. beansHancock Co. beans with some Japanese beetle feeding.Putnam County (Central )Corn Summary: It is starving for N. It was an even stand but only five to six feet tall. There is quite a bit of GLS and NCLB. There is corn borer feeding in possible refuge corn. There was a population of 33,000. There are zipper ears and tip back that shows signs of extreme early season stress from moisture. Now it is in need of water. Very poor field. There was more variability at the Wood County site which actually helped it there. This field was just consistently bad. Yield estimate at 119 bushels.Soybean Summary: This is the worst field of the day. It is in 15-inch rows and not canopied. Tile lines are evident. It is highly variable with an average height of 25 inches or so. There were big holes in the field with nothing in the low areas. They have been flooded and now need moisture. Poor nodulation in the field. Two inches between the nodes. Pods are small and beans are small. Poor, poor, poor conditions. The population was 94,000.Putnam Co. cornPutnam Co. cornPutnam Co. beans Paulding County (Southeastern)Corn Summary: Uneven field and tile lines are easy to find. Heavy weed pressure due to wet conditions and no chance to apply herbicide. Rains washed residuals away. N deficiency is a significant problem. No real disease or insect pressure, other than  physoderma brown spot. Ear development is poor. with a generous yield estimate of 70 bushels in this very poor field. Soybean Summary: There was a plant population of 83,000 due to water laying in the fields. There were few pods set but the plant was still in bloom and there is still potential to add yield if they get some rain and the growing season is long enough. The canopy was only 20 inches tall and the 15-inch rows had not yet closed. The ground is cracking wide open and needs some water. No disease or insect feeding was found. This was by far the worst stop so far after some very clearly challenging conditions. The low population will mean some lost yield. Paulding Co. beansPaulding Co. beansPaulding Co. cornPaulding Co. corn Van Wert County (South central)Corn Summary: The population was 31,000 planted on May 8. The field had spindly stalks and small leaves. There was a little disease pressure and some corn borer feeding. The plants were short and at R2. It was very uneven following tile lines. There had clearly been quite a bit of rain early in the season here. It has gotten rain but could use more to bump yields up a bit. The plants looked healthy but had small ears. This was a poor field overall. The yield estimate is 110 bushels per acre.  Soybean Summary: These were planted in 10-inch rows at 180,000 population on May 21. The final population we counted was 115,000. The canopy height was variable from 12 inches tall to 21 inches tall.  It was three inches to the first node and 4.5 inches to the first pod. No disease or insect problems. A lot of the pods had beans in them and they still have potential for 35 or 40 bushel yields. Overall it was fair compared to other places in NW Ohio.Van Wert Co. cornVan Wert Co. cornVan Wert Co. beans Allen County (Southeastern)Corn Summary: This is the best corn field of the day so far. It was planted on May 5 with 32,000 plants per acre. We found a stand of 31,000. There was no disease or insect pressure and ear fill was excellent. There were no real N issues. It was among the better fields in the area. No fungicide had been applied. The moisture was adequate. Excellent fie;d and yield potential. Yield estimate is 201 bushels.Soybean Summary: This was a 3.3 maturity bean planted at 150,000 population in 15-inch rows on May 8. The canopy was 38 inches. It was eight inches to the first pod and 2.25 inches between nodes. There was really good nodulation on these beans. There was no major disease and some light feeding from Japanese beetles, especially at the field edges. The final population was at 130,000 in this excellent field, the best of the day.Allen Co. beansJapanese beetle on Allen Co. beansAllen Co. cornAllen Co. corn Auglaize County (South central)Corn Summary:  Corn was pretty well advanced, around R3 or R4. These were some of the fullest ears we have seen today but there were signs of N deficiency. Disease pressure was light. Ear fill was generally good, though there was some tip back. It was an overall excellent field. We ended up with 32,000 plant population with a yield estimate of 160 bushels.Soybean Summary: Soybeans were in 15-inch rows and 38 inches tall. There was excellent nodulation on the roots and they were almost done blooming. It was about two inches to the first node and three inches to the first pod and 2.5 inches between nodes. We did see some frogeye and a little white mold. There was some mild Japanese beetle damage. There was a population of 163,000 plants per acre in this excellent field.Auglaize Co. beansWhite mold in Auglaize Co. beans Auglaize Co. cornAuglaize Co. cornlast_img read more

3 Unusual Camera Angles to Liven up Your Dialogue Scenes

first_imgThe Pacing QuestionerPulp Fiction was a stylistic tour de force that put Tarantino on the map, introducing us to many of his visual signatures. In one of the first scenes, where Jules (Samuel L. Jackson) interrogates his prey, Brad sits in a seat as Jules paces back and forth in front of him. The camera follows him as he walks, turns, and looms over Brad, before finally shooting him. The tight framing means that the camera pans back and forth as Jules stalks his prey, turning what could have been a straight exchange between two men into a tense standoff.Tarantino’s framing and blocking mirrors the psychological game Jules is playing with Brad, going from friendly to menacing and back to friendly, as the frame goes from wide to extreme closeup and back to wide. French OversFrench overs originally came from the difficulty of getting a camera in front of actors in a car scene. Instead of the kind of typical side coverage you’d shoot of two actors on a couch, French overs capture the scene from behind, so you only get part of the actor’s face in their close-up, and are far from the eyeline.Even outside of the car scenario, French overs are a great way to shoot a scene — making it seem like the two characters have something to hide. It’s perfect for spy thrillers — or anytime the characters know things the audience doesn’t. We are outside of their personal space, peeking into the conversation and unable to read their full expressions. Here are three ways some leading filmmakers have broken new ground and freshened up what could otherwise be shoot-by-numbers footage.If you shoot many dialogue scenes, it’s easy to fall into a routine — a wide to mid shot, then matching over-the-shoulder shots, with some clean singles for coverage. The characters might be facing each other (or side by side), but this formula pretty quickly becomes stale, unless you find new ways to approach it. So here are a few angles you might want to consider to mix things up.High, On-Axis SingleFor the Academy Award-nominated cinematography of The Grandmaster, Philippe Le Sourd decided to shoot some clean singles of the actors, not to one side of their eyeline but above it. The result certainly looks different and is undeniably engaging because it’s in line with the eye. It distorts the face in a new way that makes us feel as though we’re standing behind the character being spoken to, instead of to the side.center_img The Girl in the Spider’s Web.The traditional approaches to shooting a scene can be great to fall back on if time is tight or you don’t have a lot to work with. A scene shot this way allows for plenty of options in the edit, but it’s no substitute for approaching your subjects with imagination and experimentation. Even the most pedestrian dialogue is an opportunity to find and express something about the characters and their world.Cover image via The Girl in the Spider’s Web (Columbia Pictures).Looking for more cinematography tips and tricks?

SC asks EC to pass order on plea to prepone poll timing

first_imgNew Delhi: The Supreme Court asked the Election Commission on Thursday to pass “necessary orders” on a representation seeking advancing of the voting time to 5 AM from 7 AM for the remaining phases of the Lok Sabha polls due to heat wave conditions and onset of the holy month of Ramzan.A plea in this regard was mentioned for urgent hearing before a bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi. The bench, also comprising justices Deepak Gupta and Sanjiv Khanna, took the petition on board and said, “The Election Commission of India is directed to pass necessary orders. The writ petition is disposed of in the above terms.” Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra SinghThe petition, filed by advocates Mohammad Nizamuddin Pasha and Asad Hayat, sought advancement of polling hours by two to two-and-a half hours, for voting to commence from 4.30 or 5 AM instead of 7 AM, in the remaining phases. “The petitioners pray for a direction to the Election Commission of India to extend the polling hours during the fifth, sixth and seventh phases of the ongoing general elections, 2019 on May 6, May 12 and May 19, respectively, by 2-2.5 hours so as to commence at 4:30/5 AM (instead of the notified time of 7 AM) on account of the unprecedented heat waves prevailing in several parts of the country and the onset of the holy month of Ramzan,” the plea said. Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroadThe plea said that Ramzan, the holy month of fasting for Muslims, is likely to commence from May 6, the day of fifth phase of voting in the Lok Sabha elections. It said that during Ramzan, Muslims keep fast and do not consume food or water from one and a half hours before dawn till dusk every day. The petitioners said they had given a representation to the Election Commission on Monday last in this regard, but the poll panel has not responded to it. “On April 29, a representation was made to the respondent (EC) on this behalf bringing the aforesaid facts to its notice and requesting it to extend the polling hours in the fifth, sixth and seventh phases of the general elections 2019 so as to commence at 4.30 or 5 am instead of 7 am but no response has been received so far,” the plea said. It also said that Indian Meteorological Department has issued warnings indicating severe heat wave conditions over the next few days, with temperatures rising up to five degree celsius than normal in poll bound areas of Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Haryana, Delhi, Chandigarh, Jharkhand, Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh. The plea said that the harsh weather conditions would make it difficult for Muslims to go out and vote. “In the intense heat, it will be very difficult for Muslim voters to queue up at the poling booths during the day in the intense heat to exercise their franchise. During Ramzan, most practising Muslims stay up for an early morning meal and sleep after the morning prayer,” it said. “Thereafter, they avoid going out in the heat to the extent possible to avoid thirst, dehydration and the possibility of a heatstroke. Therefore, in the present weather conditions, a lot of Muslim will be unable to go out to exercise their franchise,” the plea said.last_img read more

NCAA Mens Tournament Forecast The Parity Is Over

Check out FiveThirtyEight’s March Madness predictions.Not long ago, in a galaxy not so far away from wherever Comcast placed truTV in your cable lineup, the era of the dominant men’s college basketball team was over. Last year, no team had more than a 15 percent chance of winning the NCAA men’s tournament, according to FiveThirtyEight’s pre-tournament forecast (Louisville was the best bet). In 2011, the nominal favorite was Duke, with a 22 percent chance. In 2012, it was Kentucky, at 27 percent, and in 2013, Louisville led with a 23 percent chance. While two of those favorites (Kentucky in 2012 and Louisville in 2013) happened to win, the lack of dominant teams left the door wide open for lower seeds to make a deep run, as No. 7 seed Connecticut did in winning last year’s national championship.This year is much different — an echo from a bygone era of short-shorts and star players who actually played through their senior seasons. The Kentucky Wildcats are undefeated; they could become the first men’s team to finish the season undefeated since the 1976 Indiana Hoosiers. Kentucky has a 41 percent chance of winning it all, according to our forecast — about double what we’ve seen from front-runners in recent years.There’s not a lot to critique in the Wildcats’ résumé. While the SEC is not a terrific basketball conference, Kentucky played a reasonable non-conference schedule and won 13 games against other NCAA tournament teams. The Wildcats rank first in all but one of the computer power ratings that the FiveThirtyEight model uses and a close second in the other. They were last year’s national runner-up and the preseason No. 1. They have all the talent in the world, including three possible NBA lottery picks.But a 41 percent chance isn’t all that high. It remains more likely than not that Kentucky will stumble at some point along the way and won’t win the national championship.What could go wrong? Some of it is the unforgiving mathematics of a 68-team tournament.The Wildcats will be a favorite in every game they play for the rest of the year, but they’ll be playing some capable basketball teams. The odds of running into a streak shooter, or having a game in which they miss some free throws down the stretch, are fairly high.Let’s get more specific. Below, I’ve tallied Kentucky’s chances of winning each round of the tournament, according to our model (the rightmost column). I’ve also listed the Wildcats’ chances of winning each round conditional on them having survived the previous round. So in the conditional column, we’re fast-forwarding the tournament and assuming that Kentucky wins at each stage. For instance, Kentucky has about an 85 percent chance of winning its Elite Eight game and advancing to the Final Four, provided that it’s made it that far.Kentucky is at least a 73 percent favorite in every round. It’s not in an especially tough region, and the team will be able to stay close to home, needing to travel no more than 282 miles from campus (the distance from Lexington, Kentucky, to Cleveland, Ohio, home of the Midwest regional) to win the tournament.But even with the odds stacked in Kentucky’s favor, winning six consecutive games won’t be easy.And there are some other excellent teams in this tournament. Suppose that because of some clerical error, Kentucky’s spot in the tournament instead went to Northern Kentucky, which went 13-17 in something called the Atlantic Sun Conference. In that case, the five teams with the next-best chances — Arizona, Duke, Villanova, Virginia and Wisconsin — would collectively have a 68 percent chance of winning the title. That’s better than the cumulative 54 percent chance that the top five teams had last year.In other words, this would be a top-heavy tournament even without Kentucky. While there’s not a clear No. 2 after the Wildcats, the teams ranked from second through sixth or seventh nationally (in some order) are a strong group, a bit stronger than we’ve seen in the most recent men’s tournaments.So let’s explore the field region by region. For each one, I’ve listed each team’s rating according to the seven ratings systems that the FiveThirtyEight model averages to generate its forecasts. The rankings from each system are normalized so as to make them directly comparable.Five of the seven systems are computer rankings, and they tend to produce highly similar results. It will usually be more interesting to compare the computer rankings with the two human-generated polls: where a team ranked in the preseason (teams that overachieve during the regular season have a history of reverting to the mean in the tournament) and where it placed on the selection committee’s 68-team S-curve. Teams with higher S-curve ratings than computer ratings are potentially overseeded; teams with higher computer ratings than S-curve ratings are possibly underseeded.The charts will also show the adjustment our model applies for injuries and player absences. Usually this has a negative effect, but it can be positive if the team is healthier now than it was during the regular season — as Maryland and Virginia are, for instance. We’ll start with Kentucky’s region, the Midwest:While the Wildcats may not quite have even odds of winning the national championship, they are more likely than not (a 72 percent chance) to reach the Final Four.Kentucky has a favorable draw, but some of that is by the committee’s design. The best No. 1 seed — Kentucky this year — is theoretically supposed to be paired with the worst No. 2, and the committee made good on that by placing Kansas in Kentucky’s region. While Kansas has an entirely respectable record for a No. 2 seed, it ranks behind the other No. 2 seeds (Virginia, Arizona and Gonzaga) by the metrics we track.Kentucky also faces a relatively easy Sweet 16 game. Maryland and West Virginia, the No. 4 and 5 seeds in the Midwest, are both slightly overseeded, according to our model.Dark horses in the Midwest include Wichita State and Texas, which are badly underseeded as No. 7 and No. 11, respectively. Even there, however, Kentucky catches something of a break. It can’t face either the Shockers or the Longhorns until the Elite Eight.But while the draw is reasonably favorable for Kentucky, there’s one potential glitch. In the national semifinal, it will be due to face the winner of the West region. And the West is probably the strongest in the tournament this year:In fact, the top two seeds in the West — Wisconsin and Arizona — rank as the second and third best teams nationally, according to our composite ratings. The No. 2 seed, Arizona, actually rates slightly higher than Wisconsin; Arizona is also the only team ahead of Kentucky in any of the seven systems we track (Arizona rates slightly ahead of Kentucky in Sonny Moore’s power ratings.).Still, these are marginal differences. (Arizona’s composite power rating is 94.7 while Wisconsin’s is 94.1, which means that Arizona would be favored by less than a point on a neutral court.) So why does the model give Arizona a considerably better chance — 46 percent against Wisconsin’s 33 percent — of reaching the Final Four? Some of it has to do with each team’s Sweet 16 matchup. Wisconsin’s prospective opponent (No. 4 seed North Carolina) rates as being stronger than Arizona’s (No. 3 seed Baylor). But the geography also works in Arizona’s favor; the regional final will be played in Los Angeles.There’s not much depth in the West after the top four seeds. But one potential exception is the No. 10 seed, Ohio State, which is as strong as a typical No. 5 seed by the computer ratings even though Aaron Craft finally graduated.Villanova is the second-most-likely team to win the national championship. That’s a bit misleading; there’s a huge gap between Kentucky (41 percent) and Villanova (11 percent) and a tiny one between Villanova and the next-most-likely champions (Wisconsin and Arizona, at 10 percent each). Still, Villanova will benefit from being on the opposite side of the bracket from Kentucky, Wisconsin and Arizona. Villanova does have a tough No. 2 seed in the East region in the form of Virginia, but there aren’t a lot of easy outs among the No. 2 seeds this year.Virginia wasn’t done any favors by the committee, by contrast. No. 7 Michigan State, which knocked the Hoos out of the tournament last year, looms as their Round of 32 matchup. Like last year, MSU seems to have been underseeded, even before considering Tom Izzo’s history of postseason overachievement. Full disclosure: I’m from East Lansing.The East region also features an unusual circumstance: The University of Dayton will get to play on its home court in its “play-in” game against the other No. 11 seed, Boise State. This is part of why our model considers Dayton a 73 percent favorite in that game despite having only a slightly stronger power rating than the Broncos.Last up is the South, the most wide-open region this year. Even as a member in good standing of the Christian Laettner Hate Club — we’re automatically enrolled in East Lansing — I don’t mean to disparage No. 1 seed Duke. One can question whether Duke deserved a No. 1 ahead of Arizona and Virginia, but that’s because the No. 2 seeds are really good this year. Duke would be a No. 1 without much question in most recent tournaments.But the Blue Devils do potentially face a tough No. 2 of their own in Gonzaga. And they’ll have to win their Sweet 16 game to get there, where they may face No. 5 Utah, among the more underseeded teams in the tournament and a favorite against No. 4 Georgetown. The South also runs fairly deep: No. 8 San Diego State and No. 10 Davidson are tough outs, for instance.What about the much-maligned No. 11 seed, UCLA? Actually, our forecasts suggest that the committee did just fine with that choice: UCLA’s computer ratings are right in line with its seed.Either way, though, it probably won’t matter. Overall, this isn’t the best year for underdogs — the favorites are really something for a change. read more

Arsenal need to build around Alexandre Lacazette – Keown

first_imgAlexandre Lacazette will become a key figure at Arsenal if they look to “build around” him, says former defender Martin KeownThe French striker has struggled to make a significant impact at Arsenal following his £46.5m from Lyon last year.As a consequence, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was brought over to the Emirates from Borussia Dortmund for a club record fee of £56m and has since established himself as the Gunners’ main frontman.But Lacazette has impressed under new manager Unai Emery, despite the majority of his appearances coming from the bench this season.Keown told the Daily Mail: “I think special mention has to go to Alexandre Lacazette.“How patient has that man been? His attitude has been impeccable.“He failed to make the French squad for the World Cup then watched from afar as they went on to lift the trophy in Russia.“Emery used him as a substitute in his first three Premier League matches, then he finally gets to start against Cardiff.“So what does he do? He goes and scores the winner. Lacazette now has to play and be the person they build around. Full credit to him.”?? ALEXANDRE LACAZETTE ???

This is a period of calm for the new head coach.“If I was in his staff, I’d be saying we need to consider making a change to the system.“Arsenal’s centre-backs Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis aren’t really the best in possession of the ball.“Emery has very creative players who play further up the pitch but he needs a figure who can sit in deep midfield. Lucas Torreira could be that man and he could then help the back two out.“It can sometimes feel like we’re watching a youth team whose players are trying to be developed into passers.“Manchester City play 4-1-2-3, with a deep midfielder and two creative players either side. That may be the way for Emery to go.”Arsenal will be back in action on September 15 away to Newcastle United.last_img read more
