Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — April 19, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest 180419_RyanMartinMoisture holds on over Ohio through midday today. Clouds will yield scattered light showers, drizzle and even some snowflakes today. The best chance of snow comes in NE Ohio, where we see the coldest temps this morning and we also have some lake interaction. However, temps quickly move to a level to support all drizzle for most of the morning. By early to mid-afternoon everything should be well to our east, and clouds should start to break up We feel that most of the state will see pretty good sunshine potential before sunset. Temperatures are chilly today, but not as cold as earlier in the week. And, we should see some slight improvement from here.We expect dry weather for all of tomorrow, the weekend, Monday and Tuesday of next week. Models threw a new wrinkle in late yesterday, bringing a stronger system out of the northern plains, across the upper Midwest and into the eastern Corn Belt next Wednesday afternoon. Here, we see that wave merging with the small chances of moisture we had kept in over the state coming up from the southwest. The two entities combined now look to give us some decent moisture at midweek. We generally do not like to change our forecasts based on one model’s look at things and after just a model run here or there. But, we are seeing some confirmation this morning from other models, and our analysis of the set up falls in line with the consensus too. We are going to have to insert some bigger action potential for next Wednesday afternoon, Wednesday night and even Thursday. Rains will likely be from .25”-1.1” over 90% of the state, and action will not be done until closer to sunset Thursday evening. This moisture will come at a time sure to disrupt thoughts of field work after the previous 5 day dry stretch. The map below shows a storm total for this event as of late Thursday afternoon.We go back to drier weather for Friday. A minor batch of clouds move over the state overnight Friday night into Saturday, and that could trigger a shower or two, but precipitation will be limited to 25% coverage and totals of a tenth or less…so not a big deal. Better rain potential develops later Saturday afternoon, the 28th into the 29th, where we can see up to .25”-.66” over about 80% of the state. Like the system before it, this system looks to focus a little more on Ohio, honestly, than it did earlier in the week.A strong front sets up over the Corn Belt in the May 2nd to May 4th time period. This front does not have a lot of movement with it, and may stall over the region until a stronger low is able to move up it. That will allow for scattered showers through the period. Right now, the best rains stay west of us, but this is a highly unsettled pattern, so we could end up having to raise rain totals here. Suffice to say, the start of May has the potential to be wet, and it would not surprise us to see moisture hold into the 5th.Temperatures are still chilly today, but moderate some over the weekend. We should see temps getting closer to normal, but they will not exceed normal. We still have a bias of at least 5-7 degrees below normal on average now through the end of the month, which is better than we had been…we feel our worst cold is behind us.last_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast August 27, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Leaving the forecast pretty much alone this morning. We are wet here in the short term with plenty of rain around today, but then shift to dry weather for a time, with our next rain threat coming later this weekend.Today we expect rains of .3″-1.8″ across 90% of Ohio. The heavy rains will be triggered by thunderstorms, and have the best potential along and east of a line from Cleveland to Cincinnati. Rain likely does not end until near or after midnight tonight in eastern parts of the state.Mostly sunny skies expected tomorrow through Saturday, although clouds will be on the increase Saturday afternoon.Scattered showers return Sunday with moisture potential for a few hundredths up to .4″. Coverage will be at 50%.Clouds linger through Monday, with increasing sun potential in the afternoon. Then sunny and dry Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.Next Thursday scattered showers may try and push into the northern part of Ohio, but we stay partly sunny south.10 day rain potentialThe extended period is wet for next Friday and Saturday (6th and 7th) with combined rain potential of .4″-1″ and coverage of 90%. Then Sunny and dry from Sunday the 11th through Wednesday the 14th.Temps over the next 2 weeks will be generally below normal. We do get a bit of a bump in temps this weekend, but otherwise below to well below normal, on average about 5-10 degrees.last_img read more

Bengal’s burning shame: acid attacks and the State’s persistent apathy

first_imgDipak Rajak and Parul, parents of Deepawali, have nothing much to hold on to, except their daughter’s black diary in which she meticulously recorded details of her life right until that fateful day when acid was forced down her throat.Every moment of Deepawali’s life finds a mention in the diary. One of the last entries, months before the 24-year-old succumbed to her injuries, reads as follows (translated from Bangla):They hit me with a gun and dragged me by my hairHelpless mother was left pleading in despairA bottle came out of the pocket and he poured acid in my mouthFace was burning, neck was burning, they all watched in delightDeepawali died on October 24, 2017, three weeks before the festival of lights after which she was named, of injuries she sustained three-and-a-half years ago.Beside Deepawali’s framed photograph on the wall of the two-room house in Satangapara in the southern fringes of Malda district, the telltale signs of the horrific attack on the evening of February 20, 2014 are still visible. The acid stains on the wall have not been scrubbed and serve as a reminder of the trauma for Parul, who watched her daughter being brutalised. She points to the stains on the wooden door and the floor, and the burns on the shawl she wore that day.It was just after seven. Mother and daughter had settled down in front of the TV, waiting for their favourite programme to start, when they heard a knock at the door. When Parul opened it, Ujjwal Mondal, who had been stalking her daughter for months, barged in and switched off the lights. Seconds later, Parul heard her daughter’s heart-rending scream.Not an isolated caseMonths before Deepawali died, a local court sentenced Mondal to 10 years of rigorous imprisonment for attempt to murder under Section 307 of the Indian Penal Code, and for causing grievous hurt by use of acid, under Section 326A. The family wants him to be tried and prosecuted for murder. But their efforts to press murder charges have so far proved unfruitful.Mondal’s house in Bengalipara is about 1.5 km from Deepawali’s house. “There were occasions when he (Mondal) used to follow my daughter on her way to college. He would pass comments. Every time I complained to his parents, they refused to pay heed. Instead they approached us with a marriage proposal,” says Parul. The family did not approach the police in the hope that Mondal would mend his ways.Dibyaloke Rai Chaudhuri, coordinator of the Acid Survivors and Women Welfare Foundation (ASWWF), describes Deepawali’s case as one of the most tragic ones that he has encountered in his work. “The acid poured in her mouth severely damaged her oesophagus. We helped her with many surgeries but she could not be saved,” he says, pointing at two of her photographs, taken before and after the attack.Deepawali’s death certificate, which was issued by the State-run SSKM Hospital, says her death was caused by cardiorespiratory failure due to septicaemia (blood poisoning). In this hospital, between February 2014 and 2017, more than ten surgeries were performed on Deepawali. This included three reconstructive surgeries on her face, and several procedures to save her oesophagus. Unable to eat solid food, she remained on a liquid diet. For Monisha Pailan, what is perhaps more painful than the incident itself is that her attacker Salim is not behind bars yet. | Photo Credit: Ritu Raj Konwar The latest report of the National Crime Records Bureau (2016) recorded 283 incidents and 307 victims under Section 326A (acid attack) and Section 326B (attempt to carry out an acid attack) of the IPC in India. Of these, 26% (76 incidents) and 27% of the victims were from West Bengal. In comparison, during the same period, Uttar Pradesh, the most populous State with over double the population of West Bengal, recorded 57 incidents and 61 victims.Sections 326A and 326B of the IPC were added after the passage of the Criminal Law Amendment Act in 2013. Before this, perpetrators were typically charged with causing hurt, which only invited a punishment of three years.Easy availability of acidData compiled by the ASWWF reveals that West Bengal recorded 220 cases of acid attacks between 2010 and 2016, which is about 20% of all cases recorded in the country. While there are no definitive studies explaining this phenomenon, the easy availability of acid is said to be a major reason for the wide prevalence of this ghastly crime.Bapi Dasgupta of the Association for Protection of Democratic Rights (APDR) has spent years fighting cases on behalf of acid attack victims, extracting information on compensation paid, and campaigning for tighter laws to control over-the-counter sale of acid.“A few months ago, authorities in Hooghly district informed us that they had issued a circular restricting the sale of acid. But when we asked them for a copy of the notification, they could not find one,” he says, rummaging through documents in his house in Chandanagar, Hooghly district.Dasgupta reels off the names of eight victims in Hooghly and Bardhaman district, starting from 2013: Mehroon Khatun, Moumita Chakraborty, Rokeya Biwi, Saheba Khatun, Mira Patra, Saraswati Patra, Basudev Gorai, and a minor girl (name withheld). The minor’s family lives in a remote island, Notundampalchak, which is surrounded by the Ganga. Notundampalchak has not seen electricity yet, but acid seemed easily available to the man who attacked her in 2016. These are victims from remote villages and belong to poor families, most of whom do not have regular jobs or sources of income.While varieties of acid such as muriatic acid and hydrochloric acid are available in hardware shops, the chemical most commonly used in attacks is nitric acid, sourced from local goldsmith shops. In West Bengal, goldsmith shops are a dime a dozen. They can be found anywhere from the Sunderbans in the south to Darjeeling in the north, and even in the impoverished southwestern districts of Purulia and Jhargram.Over the past few years, Murshidabad in particular has seen a spike in acid attacks. Between 2010 and 2016, at least 20 cases of acid attacks were reported in this district alone. In 2014, in the district’s Beldanga area, Angura Biwi’s mother-in-law threw acid on her. In 2016, a class XII girl was attacked by one Raqibur Mondal with acid for spurning his advances.In connection with another attack that took place in August 2016, a fast-track court in Baharampur, Murshidabad, sentenced both the attacker and the man who had sold him the acid to 10 years of rigorous imprisonment in December 2017. It had turned out that the shopkeeper, Chandan Pal, from whom Rakesh Mondal had purchased the acid, did not have the licence to sell acid. But his conviction has hardly been a deterrent; the sale and use of acid continues.Pilfering the chemicalSonapatti, a maze of narrow lanes in the Khagra neighbourhood of Baharampur town, is home to 2,000 small and big goldsmith shops. In a 8ft by 5ft shop, a 41-year-old goldsmith (who does not wish to be named) points to a yellowish orange liquid in a glass container.All shopkeepers use nitric acid for refining gold. The chemical gets rid of impurities and other minerals present in the yellow metal. The goldsmith explains how gold cut into small pieces is first put into a container of acid and heated. Once the acid becomes hot, red bubbles emerge, with pure gold settling at the bottom of the container. “We source acid from Murshidabad and also from Kolkata,” he says. The floor of the shop is corroded by the continuous use of acid, and the shopkeeper says that his employees have to be extremely careful as the liquid can even melt bones.It is from shops like these that acid is pilfered. Occasionally, workers sneak out a small quantity for an acquaintance or a friend in exchange for a few hundred rupees.Acid used in garment factories for textile processing is also corrosive, and certain districts that are garment hubs have also reported attacks involving acid sourced from these factories.Animesh Rajak is convinced that the acid that killed his sister Deepawali was sourced from a local goldsmith. “There are two shops close to Mondal’s house of which one is owned by Mondal’s family. We are sure that the acid was sourced from there. The shop was closed for a few months after the incident but then it reopened,” Rajak says.Sanjay Biswas, the officer in charge of Baishnabnagar police station, says the attack on Deepawali is a rare case. No action has been taken against the person who sold the acid, Biswas admits, but claims that the police station has taken measures to prevent acid pilferage.“On the fourth Saturday of every month, a meeting is held at the gram panchayat level, attended by an officer of the level of Sub-Inspector,” he says. “Among the 16 points that are discussed, one is on preventing acid theft.”center_img The long road to compensationA detailed situational analysis of the acid attacks, the reasons for carrying out such attacks, and their impact on survivors was conducted by ASWWF across the country a few years ago. The study underscored that rejection in love and of marriage proposals were the motivating factor in 36% of all these attacks. This is followed by marital discord (13%). About 84% of the victims were known to the perpetrators. The study also revealed that a significant number of victims were male (35%).Mazrul Islam, a 40-year-old farmer in Murshidabad’s Bhagwangola area, was attacked in October 2013 following a dispute with a local goldsmith. Islam, who has undergone four surgeries in five years, says that despite several attempts to shut down the shop, it is still up and running. “I have to endure the humiliation of seeing this man’s shop which is only 800 metres from my home,” he says.Though Islam has received a compensation of ₹3 lakh (paid after ASWWF’s intervention), the medical expenses have been several times greater than the compensation, he says. In Laxmi v. Union of India and Others (2015), the Supreme Court had laid out clear guidelines on compensation to be paid to acid attack victims. But lawyers and activists across West Bengal say that the State government is not proactive in compensating victims. Information obtained by APDR through a number of Right to Information queries earlier this year showed that of 46 cases, only 18 of the victims were compensated.To make matters worse, the state is also seeking to dilute the provisions of the West Bengal Victim Compensation Scheme, 2017 by inserting eligibility clauses for compensation of victims. Two clauses in particular stand out. One stipulates that the injury should have caused substantial loss to the person’s family income. The second is that the victim should not have been compensated before for any loss or injury by the State or Central government, an insurance company, or any other institution. “We are going to challenge the notification before the High Court,” Dasgupta says.Jayanta Narayan Chatterjee, a senior advocate of the Calcutta High Court, has been instrumental in helping a number of victims receive compensation. He believes that compensation should be independent of the status of the case. In other words, it should be paid regardless of whether the accused has been arrested or not. Both Dasgupta and Chatterjee contend that most victims do not know how to approach the court for compensation and redressal.Chatterjee remembers one case vividly. A woman from Malda’s Harischandrapur block was attacked with acid by her husband. In March 2016, she came to the High Court for the hearing of the bail petition of the accused. To everyone’s surprise, she wanted to withdraw the case and return to her husband’s home. When the judges assured her that she would be provided medical and monetary help, she broke down, the lawyer says. Chatterjee had been appointed as amicus curiae to counsel her and assure her that the court would extend all help to her.Learning from BangladeshGiven the rising number of acid attack cases in West Bengal, legal experts and activists working on this issue are increasingly referring to neighbouring Bangladesh as a model for how to tackle the problem.Until a few years ago, Bangladesh recorded the highest incidence of acid attacks in the world. It then passed two laws to curb such attacks: Acid Offence Control Act, 2002, and Suppression of Offense by Acid Attack, 2002. Before 2002, the country saw about 500 acid attacks a year. But with the legislation coming into force, along with other measures, the number of attacks came down to about 100 a year.These laws not only instituted a complete ban on over-the-counter sale of acid but also mandated the setting up of tribunals to deal with acid attacks, and the creation of a National Acid Control Council. Bangladesh has made it mandatory that investigation in these cases should be completed within 30 days.This is in sharp contrast to the present state of affairs in West Bengal where, apart from a shameful track record in compensating victims, there is also an abysmal conviction rate.“The all-India conviction rate in acid attack cases in the past few years was about 40%, but in West Bengal it was just 14%,” says Rai Chaudhuri. In many cases, the victims were poor and did not have the means to take up their cases in court. Moreover, the attacks leave the victims in a state of shock and in hospital for months, which helps the accused to either escape or manipulate the law, he says. Experts say that the biggest challenge for an acid attack victim is meeting the medical expenses, as they need multiple surgeries, and rehabilitation could take years or even decades.For Monisha Pailan, what is as, if not more, agonising than the attack, in which she lost an eye and had to undergo several surgeries, is that Salim, who threw acid on her, is not behind bars. But the 23-year-old from Joynagar in South 24 Parganas is unlike many survivors and has not retreated into a shell. She has a profile on social media where she regularly posts selfies. Following the attack, Pailan’s parents either covered or removed all the mirrors in their house.But Pailan, when speaking to The Hindu, preferred to sit before a mirror. “The first time I saw my face, it was more painful than the acid burning up my face,” she says. Pailan is pursuing a Masters degree in history and works in a café. When she uses public transport, people stare at her. “I don’t need to feel sorry about my face,” she says. “It is just a burn injury.” She is not scared of looking into the mirror any more. “My face mirrors the society we live in.”last_img read more

Farmers’ strike receives poor response on Day 1

first_imgThe 10-day nationwide strike called by the All India Kisan Mahasangh elicited a lukewarm response in most parts of Maharashtra on the first day of the agitation. Barring Ahmednagar, Jalgaon and a few areas in Nashik district, the nerve centre of the agitation, the strike failed to get going in urban centres such as Mumbai and Pune. Supply of milk and vegetables to these areas also remained largely unaffected. While more than 100 farmers’ outfits participated in the strike, major organisations in the State like the Raju Shetti-led Swabhimani Shetkari Sanghatana refrained from actively participating in the protest.In Khed Shivapur, farmers condemned the apathy of the Devendra Fadnavis-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government by spilling thousands of litres of milk along Pune-Bengaluru highway.Similar scenes were witnessed near Sinnar-Shirdi highway in Nashik. Farmers demonstrated by spilling milk and demanding a complete loan waiver and immediate implementation of the recommendations put forward by the M.S. Swaminathan Committee on agrarian reform. According to reports, the police detained three protesters in Saikheda in Nashik. At Khamkheda village in the district’s Deola tehsil, tomato farmers protested by throwing their produce on the roads. The strike had an impact on business at the district’s Lasalgaon Agricultural Produce Market Committee. Sources said the agitation would see a rise in onion prices and other vegetables and fruits in the coming days.Business as usualHowever, business remained largely unaffected in major wholesale markets in Mumbai and Pune and dairies in Western Maharashtra. According to Dilip Khaire, chairman of the board of administrators of Pune APMC, the arrival of fruits and vegetables had been normal.last_img read more

Mens Basketball Ohio States future secured with NCAA Tournament bid

Head coach Chris Holtmann talks to the Buckeyes during a timeout in the second half of the game against Michigan State at the Big Ten tournament on Mar. 14 in Chicago. Ohio State lost 77-70. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorAfter Ohio State’s loss to Michigan State in the Big Ten tournament semifinal, head coach Chris Holtmann was confident that his team’s body of work was representative of an NCAA Tournament team. He felt the same the day after, telling Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith he felt the Buckeyes were locked in as an 11 seed, maybe even a 10. Then Sunday rolled around. “As each hour passed today and I studied the numbers, I studied myself into absolute paranoia,” Holtmann said. “I just had to stop. Thank God we had practice.” For the first time in his coaching career, Holtmann experienced what leading a bubble team was really like. And on Sunday, sequestered in a room together as a team, experiencing the pressure of the unknown as a group, the unknown became known. Ohio State was an NCAA Tournament team. “All season long, we have been leaning on each other just throughout the struggles,” senior guard C.J. Jackson said. “Obviously this year has had its ups and downs and just to see our name pop up there is a bit of a sigh of relief.” For redshirt senior guard Keyshawn Woods, Ohio State’s name popping up as an 11 seed set to play Iowa State in Tulsa, Oklahoma was validation that he made the right decision to join Holtmann for his final season. This was what came to mind for the second-year head coach when Ohio State’s future became secure, watching Woods achieve what he has wanted for his collegiate career. “Keyshawn, the reason he came here was to play in the NCAA Tournament,” Holtmann said. “It wasn’t me. He basically came here and said, ‘Hey, I’m putting my faith in you that I can get there.’” Woods echoed that sentiment, saying the NCAA Tournament was always on his mind when selecting a school to spend his last season. “It’s the whole reason why I chose to become a Buckeye,” Woods said. “The belief I had in the guys, C.J., coach Holtmann, the staff, it’s a great feeling, especially to see our name pop up there.” But Holtmann said, at the beginning of the season, what Woods strived for was no guarantee. He said the Buckeyes had to establish a new identity from the very start of the season. Even with that, playing well, finding the right players to mold into his scheme and game plan, Holtmann said a Tournament bid was not exactly expected. “I thought we would have to play well. I did,” Holtmann said. “I thought it was if we played well, I thought it would be very close.” Now that Ohio State has made the NCAA Tournament for the second year in a row — Holtmann’s fifth-straight season dating back to his head coaching tenure at Butler — the approach is not one of appreciating the bid. Simply put, the Buckeyes want to show up. “I don’t think that was just our goal: just to make the Tournament. We are not here just to play one game in the Tournament,” Jackson said. “We are here to actually win some games and make a run. Not winning anymore games up to this point is not our approach and not what we are thinking.” Ohio State will begin that run against Iowa State, a team that had just won the Big 12 Championship Saturday against Kansas and had defeated six ranked opponents this season. Holtmann thought the Cyclones might be the No. 1 team of all the six seeds, saying they could have easily been a five seed. No matter Ohio State’s performance against the Cyclones in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, Jackson will end his season in the big dance, in March Madness: where he wanted it to end. And as for the future, Jackson said that is not unknown. “I just think that that shows that Ohio State is back and it doesn’t look like it’s slowing down anytime soon.” read more

Minister of Labour and Golden Gates, MP Shane Gibson was on Facebook bragging about the turn out, but seemed to irk followers when he penned that ‘some haters are soooo disappointed.’ The ‘so’ was with five Os for emphasis. Comments directly to Gibson, ranged from agreement with the minister on the reaction to strong support of the third Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival, to invitations to come out and join the fun, to appreciation for the revenue the event is earning, to concern that there were many still wondering about getting a job to make ends meet, another suggesting the money could have been better used on something else and others who wanted to see the repairs promised since Hurricane Matthew complete. Gibson is the minister with responsibility for workers and was made the so called, hurricane czar, to oversee the clean up and restoration efforts including management of millions of public and donated dollars. #MagneticMediaNews#NassaulegofJunkanooCarnival#MPShaneGibson#BahamasJunkanooCarnival Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more
