We here at The Positive Agenda want to encourage you to give it a shot. Whatever that thing is you love very much but have been reluctant to expend effort towards… maybe it’s time to try. Couldn’t hurt. And remember to Have Your Most Best Time.Check out the live studio video of Swatkins & The Positive Agenda’s “Couldn’t Hurt To Try” below.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest With the likelihood of 2018 farm economics again favoring soybean production, soybeans being planted after soybeans could be on the rise this spring.With consecutive years of soybean production, yield potential declines and the potential need for additional inputs and precautions increases.“Agronomically, we never like to see beans after beans, but when it gets into your back pocket sometimes we have to do some things differently,” said Mike Earley, Seed Consultants, Inc. agronomist. “We need to make sure to not plant the same variety in the same field back to back. If we get into continuous beans for multiple years we need to do a lot more scouting and chances are we are going to need some fungicide applications because of a lot more disease pressure in the fields.”In addition to increased potential for soybean issues including Phytophthora, white mold and frogeye leaf spot, more soybeans could also mean more yield loss to soybean cyst nematode (SCN). The silent robber of soybean yields has been on the rise and has been found in over 60% of Ohio soybean fields, according to Ohio State University Extension. SCN yield losses of 25% to 50% can take place with no above ground symptoms.Of course, the easiest way to combat SCN is crop rotation, but if that is not an option then variety selection becomes increasingly important.“Almost all of the soybean varieties sold to farmers in Ohio are labeled ‘Resistant to SCN,’ ‘Resistant to SCN Race 3’ or something similar. Most of the time, a variety labeled as SCN-resistant got its resistance from an ancestral soybean line called PI (Plant Introduction) 88788,” wrote Anne Dorrance, Laura Lindsey, Terry Niblack, and Chris Taylor with Ohio State University Extension in the CORN Newsletter. “This source of resistance was considered broad-spectrum, highly durable, and relatively easy to transfer into the new high-yielding varieties via traditional breeding practices, and that’s why most of our soybean varieties have this resistance. Based on data from hundreds of trials in locations throughout the Midwest, varieties that have this source of resistance will yield higher than similar varieties with no resistance even when SCN populations are low.”Testing for SCN also becomes increasingly important in fields of soybeans planted after soybeans. There are numerous labs that measure the SCN populations, including OSU’s own C. Wayne Ellett Plant and Pest Diagnostic Clinic. The latest fact sheet has contact information for each of these labs and management practices can be found at http://ohioline.osu.edu/ac-fact/pdf/0039.pdf.

Women from several fields in areas like politics, science, sports, technology and literature were shortlistedExperts from 10 different fields were asked to provide the names of 10 women who changed the world, to create a list of 100 women to be included in the poll.Curie was nominated by Patricia Fara, president of the British Society for the History of Science, who said: “She [Curie] was the first woman to win a Nobel prize in physics, first female professor at the University of Paris, and the first person — note the use of person there, not woman — to win a second Nobel prize.”The odds were always stacked against her, added Fara.advertisement”In Poland, her patriotic family suffered under a Russian regime. In France, she was regarded with suspicion as a foreigner — and of course, wherever she went, she was discriminated against as a woman,” Patricia finished.List of some other awards Curie won:Davy Medal (1903)Matteucci Medal (1904)Actonian Prize (1907)Elliott Cresson Medal (1909)Franklin Medal of the American Philosophical Society (1921)A look at Marie’s career graph:Marie was only 15 when she graduated from high schoolShe is the only person to have won the Nobel twiceFirst, she won the Nobel in Physics and later in ChemistryHer family has a legacy of five Nobel PrizesShe coined the term ‘radioactivity’ and gave a theory on itCurie even discovered the two very important elements, Polonium and RadiumIt was under her guidance that the Neoplasms were studied for the first time using radioactive isotopesShe set up the first military field radiological centres during World War IThe Radium Institute and the Curie Institute were founded by herShe has notable work in cancer therapies ahead of its time, like launching effective cures for the disease and helping develop X-rays in surgery for the same.

He said on Sky Sports: “They have cocked it up over many years. They have cocked it up. They have cocked it up, they are responsible for this. Poor recruitment, poor selection of, well managers, going with them and then pulling off them.”Van Gaal won the FA Cup and then they sacked him. Jose Mourinho they sacked him after two and a half years when they had given him a contract six months before.”They have pulled off managers in what would be the sort of thread of it and they have gone for completely different styles of managers in Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho.”They have now gone with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has taken the club in a completely different direction again, and if you change direction as a board every two years and you invest £250million along the way in each manager you are going to have big problems.”And Manchester United are basically now getting the pain they deserve for poor decisions at board level.”Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs to ensure that the clean up job that he is doing – which needs to be done because of the mess that’s gone before him – he needs to make sure that he actually gets the opportunity to spend that £250million that the others have got to spend so that he can have an opportunity.”There are things out there that I like. There are things that I liked from Jose Mourinho as well, I didn’t want him to be sacked, but there were things I liked out there today.”
