first_img 15 Views   no discussions Tweet Share High tides at the Le Flambeau Restaurant at the Portsmouth Beach Hotel . Photo credit: Ashton RiviereA High Surf Advisory is being posted once more and the Small-Craft Warning remains in effect for Dominica.Strong surface winds of twenty to twenty-five knots (20 to 25kt) are generating large northerly swells over the tropical Atlantic. Some of these swells will move into the coastal waters of the north, east and west coasts of Dominica creating moderate to large breaking waves which are forecasted to peak near 4m (13ft) during the next 24 to 48 hours. These adverse conditions are expected to persist into the up-coming week-end. Thus, a High-Surf Advisory is being posted for Dominica and will be in effect until 6:00 p.m Saturday, December 24th, 2011. This will complement the Small-Craft Warning which is already in effect.Hight tides at the Le Flambeau Restaurant at the Portsmouth Beach Hotel . Photo credit: Ashton RiviereA High-Surf Advisory means that seas will generate large breaking waves and dangerous rip currents.A Small-craft Warning means seas greater than 3m (9ft) and/or wind-speeds greater than 25 knots (47 kmh or 30 mph) are producing hazardous marine conditions and small-craft operators should avoid navigating in these hazardous conditions.Beach-goers, surfers and swimmers are urged to stay away from these exposed beaches or should stay out of the water until these hazardous surf conditions subside. More hazardous conditions are likely at the time of high tide.

Management tips for flooded produce

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Recent heavy rains across much of the state have resulted in widespread ponding and flooding in fields. This creates challenges for farmers growing produce for fresh consumption because of the potential for the introduction of contaminants into growing areas. With proper management, however, many of the risks introduced by flooding can be mitigated.“Growers who have water-covered fields should first determine if it is the result of pooling or flooding,” said Scott Monroe, Purdue Extension food safety educator. “Pooled water, generally more common than flooding, accumulates in lower areas of the field or between rows, especially if raised beds are used. Flooding originates from an uncontrollable source such as a river or creek.”Pooled water can cause damage to crops but generally carries less risk for microbial contamination than flood water, Monroe said. When dealing with pooled water, growers should consider whether or not the water is contacting the edible portion of the crop, how long the water was pooled, previous soil amendments, and whether or not the pooled water has resulted in increased wildlife activity in or near the affected area.According to Amanda Deering, clinical assistant professor with Purdue Extension, fields that have experienced flooding present growers with difficult management choices.“The U.S. Food and Drug Administration considers food contacted by flood water to be adulterated and not fit for human consumption,” Deering said. “Due to microbial and other concerns, produce cannot be harvested and sold into the public food supply once it contacts flood water.”In cases where flooding occurs in or near the crop but does not contact the edible portion of the crop, FDA guidance states that growers should, “Evaluate on a case-by-case basis for the likelihood of contamination.”Produce growers who experience flooding in their fields should first document the extent of the flooding with photos, flags, or other markers. This will ensure that the flooded area remains defined after flood waters have receded. Growers should also remember that flood water may contain chemical contaminants, in addition to human pathogens.“If at all possible, flooded fields should be planted with agronomic crops this season,” said Monroe. “However, on smaller and non-diversified farms that may not be a viable option.”If it becomes necessary to plant produce in flooded fields, growers should leave fields undisturbed as long as possible. Research performed at the Southwest Purdue Agricultural Center in 2015 indicated that leaving fields undisturbed might be the best way to encourage die-off of flood-deposited bacteria on soil surfaces.“At a minimum, fields should be allowed to dry thoroughly and should receive several days of intense sunlight before any tillage operations take place,” Deering said. “This may mean changing planting plans so that previously flooded fields are reserved for late crops.” Growers should also consider using flooded fields for produce that is seldom consumed raw, such as pumpkins or sweet corn. These commodities are generally cooked prior to consumption, which introduces a kill step and significantly reduces microbe populations.Growers should also pay close attention to water sources, as they can become contaminated by flood water. Wells used to supply water for production or post-harvest should be tested for generic E. coli prior to use. While microbial risks are often the focus when dealing with flooded fields, growers should remember that flood water may contain other contaminants. Always seek technical advice before investing in tests for non-microbial contaminants.In cases where only part of a field is flooded, growers should take steps to minimize cross-contamination into the rest of the field.“Growers should leave a buffer zone of at least 30 feet between the flooded and non-flooded parts of the field,” Monroe said.Other tactics to avoid cross-contamination include avoiding travel through flooded field sections to access non-flooded sections, using equipment in non-flooded areas prior to flooded areas, thoroughly cleaning equipment after use in flooded areas, and using boots and gloves while working in flooded areas.last_img read more

How to Hire an A-Team

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#Gritty Entrepreneurs#NYT#start#StartUp 101 bernard lunn Related Posts center_img 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market This is one post/chapter in a serialized book called Startup 101. For the introduction and table of contents, please click here.In How to Be an Effective CEO, we noted three things that a CEO has to do. One of them is to hire and fire a top management team. One of the simplest rules to understand is:Hire an A-Team and it will hire an A-Team. Hire a B-Team and it will hire a C-Team.This is simple to understand but hard to execute.IntegrityHere is a bit of timeless wisdom from Warren Buffet. He advises that, when hiring, look for brains, energy, and integrity. But if the people you find don’t have integrity, the other two qualities will kill you.10 Tips for Hiring an A-TeamDon’t be afraid to hire people who are smarter than you.That is harder to do than to say. You need a lot of innate confidence to do this. Hiring someone for a technical competency that you lack is easy. Hiring someone who will challenge your thinking on every level and may later go on to build a business much more successful than yours is harder.Hire athletes.They have energy, know how to endure pain to get results, and like to win.Focus hard on building a win/win compensation plan.That is, a win for the company and a win for the employee. This is also hard to do right. Even good compensation plans get gamed, which is why Buffet’s advice about integrity is so critical. Be generous… but also demanding (see #5).Take the time you need.Hiring is your most important job. Take the time to interview a lot of candidates; cast a wide net. Spend a lot of face-to-face time with the candidates on your short list. Do real reference checks, ideally face to face. Meet their family and friends socially. As a side benefit, interviewing a ton of smart people is a great way to learn more about your market.Be demanding.Find people who want to achieve ambitious goals, spend time setting metrics, and then hold them accountable to them.Be honest and transparent.You cannot expect integrity from others unless you show it yourself. And you can’t fake it either, not with members of an A-Team. They will be too smart for B.S.Listen.Just as listening is the key to selling, it is also the key to recruiting.Establish techniques and tests specific to the position.What is useful for a developer is not useful for a salesperson, and vice versa.Get a second opinion.This second opinion could come from someone internal (another manager) or someone external (an advisor). Assume that recruiters have a vested interest in closing, so take what they say with a grain of salt.Don’t just “fill a position.”That is not a meaningful milestone. It may allow you to check that box, but it will create 10 more boxes to check if you get it wrong. Don’t be afraid to delay until you get the best possible person.
