first_imgAlong with grant applications, administrative duties, publishing and hands-on research duties, scientists in agricultural research have the monumental job of disseminating vital information to stakeholders, policymakers and the general public.During its annual meeting on June 16, the American Seed Trade Association (ASTA) recognized Wayne Parrott, professor in the University of Georgia Department of Crop and Soil Sciences, with a distinguished service award for his research and communication contributions to the plant breeding industry.“Wayne is one of the outstanding scientists we have in the Institute for Plant Breeding, Genetics and Genomics as well as the interim director of the Center for Applied Genetic Technologies,” said Allen Moore, associate dean for research in the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES). “Alongside his extensive research accomplishments, he is also a talented communicator of science. I am delighted that ASTA recognized his contributions in educating the public and government on the science and value of modern genetics and genomics needed to produce sustainable crops.”Parrott’s efforts in addressing current plant breeding regulations and testimonials before Congress and federal regulators were an impetus for the award.“Science communication is more important now than ever, particularly when it comes to implementing public policy,” said Parrott, who is also a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and UGA Distinguished Research Professor. “We have expert regulators, but they cannot be experts across the board. Thus, it is incumbent on scientists to provide them with the right information.”Since coming to UGA in 1988, Parrott’s laboratory has served as an international flagship for genetic research in soybeans and other crops. He’s spent nearly three decades developing new soybean varieties and researching the human and environmental safety of genetically modified crops.U.S. Department of Agriculture regulations on agricultural biotechnology have been limiting, as they were based on science that was 40 years out of date, according to Parrott.“These rules have been recently revised, which should facilitate research and investment in the field. I fully expect there will be many new career opportunities that will materialize and help farmers out in the process.”Methods like CRISPR, a tool for editing genomes, make the improvement process for crops much easier and more efficient.“For this technology to deliver on its promise, it is important that both the public and regulators understand the risks — or lack thereof — that are involved. And this information needs to get out all over the world because things are so interconnected these days,” Parrott said.Parrott and other scientists work together to develop and deliver critical data, but national organizations like ASTA are important to help support them.“It can be really daunting for a single person to try and be heard in a big, wide world. Networking with as many colleagues as possible and with organizations like ASTA helps amplify the message,” said Parrott.To learn more about the Institute for Plant Breeding, Genetics and Genomics at UGA, visit read more

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York The New York State Attorney General’s office and education officials are reviewing Long Island school districts’ enrollment policies regarding undocumented students and unaccompanied minors amid allegations that Hempstead School District initially turned away nearly three-dozen such children at the beginning of the school year.Along with the Board of Regents and State Education Department, attorney general’s office investigators will examine whether students are being denied their constitutional right to an education, according to a press release announcing the joint compliance review. The three agencies will focus their efforts on Nassau, Suffolk, Rockland and Westchester counties. By far, Nassau (1,250) and Suffolk (1,358) have received the largest number of unaccompanied children since January, according to data released by the Office of Refugee Resettlement.“Schoolhouse doors must be open to every student in our increasingly diverse state regardless of their immigration status—there is simply no excuse for denying that basic right, which is protected by the Constitution,” Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said in a statement.The review will include an examination of districts’ written enrollment and registration materials and a review of information released to the public, officials said. Additionally, Schneiderman’s office will meet with local advocates to discuss districts’ legal obligations and students’ rights.Jason Starr, director of the New York Civil Liberties Union’s Nassau County chapter, cheered the steps being taken by the state.“This announcement signals that this is a very big issue here in New York State and on Long Island, [and that] the education department and attorney general’s office is taking the rights of all students, particularly immigrant students in this case, seriously,” Starr said.Unaccompanied children have arrived to the US en masse from Mexico and Central America after fleeing from brutal gang violence in their home countries, activists have said.Between Oct. 1, 2013 and Sept. 30, 2014 more than 68,000 unaccompanied children entered the country from the US-Mexico border, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection statistics.Even though state education officials have been assisting school districts on the issue since as far back as August 2010, the recent influx of minors has reportedly caught some districts unprepared to handle the flow of students.Citing the 1982 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Plyler v. Doe, which guaranteed undocumented children a free public education, Schneiderman said: “we must do everything we can to uphold the law and ensure equal access for all students. This review is a crucial step in that effort.”The examination is largely in response to reports that the Hempstead School District was “ignoring the law and preventing 34 Hispanic children from receiving an education,” according to the press release. Nassau BOCES is expected to release a report to the State Board of Education on Thursday addressing Hempstead School’s policies.An activist in Suffolk has also received similar complaints from parents, but did not want to publicly identify the school districts.After learning of the reports, the state Education Department sent a letter to all school districts reminding them of their obligations under federal law to allow undocumented children into classrooms.“We will not stand by while districts ignore the law and prevent these children from receiving an education,” John King Jr., the state Education Commissioner, said in a statement. “Department staff has already started this process, and we won’t stop until we’re sure every district is following the law and every child is in school.”Newsday reported this week that Hempstead school officials have started to place undocumented children at a so-called “transition school” in the village. That’s after the school district reportedly didn’t have room for the students in their classrooms.Starr said at least three-dozen students registered for classes but were initially turned away. After several days, some parents stopped bringing their kids to school and were under the impression they’d be contacted, but never were, he said.“We understand that there might be unanticipated enrollment,” Starr said. “I think that the community advocates want to make sure that the districts who have been receiving a large number of new students have what they need to provide a high quality education.”A public relations representative for the school district didn’t immediately return a call for comment.The state Board of Regents is also calling on New York’s Congressional representatives to support federal funding for districts taking in unaccompanied minors.In addition, officials said the New York State Technical and Education Assistance Center for Homeless Students has a hotline that provides people with assistance regarding shelters, social service providers and school-related issues. The number is 1-800-388-2014.last_img read more

first_imgThe 12-10 win is the second with Teddy Bridgewater starting under center and it seems New Orleans is holding on (for now) with Drew Brees sidelined.”It all feels normal now,” Bridgewater said after the game. Related News Well, that was close.It was probably a little too close for the Saints (3-1), who completed the minor upset over the Cowboys despite not scoring a touchdown. Dak Prescott contract: Cowboys, QB not close on new deal, report says The Cowboys suffered their first loss of the season after quarterback Dak Prescott couldn’t complete the comeback in the final seconds.Three takeaways from Saints’ nail-biting win over CowboysHow well can Teddy Bridgewater play at home?The back-up-turned-starter has some big shoes to fill as Brees recovers from thumb surgery. Bridgewater impressed in his starting debut with the Saints last week on the road. In the 33-27 win in Seattle, New Orleans adjusted its offensive approach to help combat the Seahawks’ huge home-field advantage.Bridgewater was excited to return to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and eager to get back to his own cadence. However, that wasn’t so easy against Dallas’ defense. He was unable to make it into the end zone but was still able to set up the team’s four scoring drives.The Cowboys controlled much of the first quarter after picking off Bridgewater on his opening drive. Bridgewater recovered well and led scoring drives three of the next four times the offense took the field.He finished 23-of-30 passing for 193 yards and one interception but he was sacked five times.The Saints defense has struggled against the pass, but not this timeThere are just a few teams that have allowed more yards passing per game than the 301.7 given up by the Saints heading into Sunday’s game.New Orleans’ pass defense seemed to be one of the biggest mismatches against Dallas, which had not scored less than 31 points in its first three wins. The Cowboys had a pretty balanced offense in all of those wins as Prescott passed for a whopping 405 yards in the first week of the season and then followed it up with more balanced attacks in 269-yard and 246-yard performances.However, against Dallas, New Orleans was able to contain Prescott for the most part — especially when it counted.Prescott finished 22-of-33 passing for 223 yards and one interception, which came on the final Hail Mary play.A positive for the Cowboys? Robert QuinnDefensive end Robert Quinn finished Week 3 with a sack and a career-high seven quarterback pressures against his former team, Miami. He again came up big when the Cowboys traveled to New Orleans to face the Saints.  He had two sacks, including a big stop on a crucial third down near the midway point of the fourth quarter where Bridgewater and company were approaching Cowboys territory.Robert Quinn with SACK number ✌️ for the night 💥#DALvsNO | #DallasCowboys— Dallas Cowboys (@dallascowboys) September 30, 2019He has even become one of the team’s biggest cheerleaders.Quinn gleefully celebrated Jaylon Smith’s sack that pushed New Orleans well out of field-goal range under the two-minute mark.Robert Quinn celebrating Jaylon Smith’s sack is everything 😂😂 @thejaylonsmith @RQuinn94— The Checkdown (@thecheckdown) September 30, 2019last_img read more

first_imgBy Chris Rotolo |MONMOUTH BEACH – After the completion of a protective seawall on the beachfront, construction of an outdoor observation deck is anticipated to begin in the spring.But a newly elected member of the Board of Commissioners has a different point of view on the project.On July 26, 2016, the borough commission adopted a Superstorm Sandy Capital Improvements ordinance that appropriated $1.8 million for the construction of an observation deck near the Monmouth Beach Bathing Pavilion. The project will be paid with a $358,995 grant from FEMA, and $1.4 million bond.It was unanimously approved by the governing body, which was then comprised of Commissioners Jim Cunniff and William McBride, and Mayor Sue Howard.The project is due to begin following the completion of the repair of the 650-foot gap in the Monmouth Beach seawall between Valentine Street and the existing wall on the south side of the Monmouth Beach Bathing Pavilion.According to Howard, the elevated observation deck will be built at the peak height of the seawall, and extend forward from the bathing pavilion pergola at 29 Ocean Ave. up to the completed seawall.In an Aug. 24 interview, Howard said the decking project will restore the prized oceanic views borough residents and visitors have grown accustomed to.“If we build the seawall and don’t do anything, residents will not be able to see the ocean anymore. There’s going to be a seawall in the way. They’ll lose that view they love so much, a view that has attracted so many people to our town over the years,” Howard said.According to Howard, the contracting company, J. Fletcher Creamer & Son, Inc., has until March 1 to complete work on the seawall, though she anticipates it will be finished ahead of that deadline. Construction on the deck will begin immediately thereafter so as not to interfere with the 2019 summer season.Borough commissioner Dave Stickle, who was the top vote-getter in a May 2017 election, in which he was elected to a four-year term – 10 months after the ordinance was adopted and the bond approved – believes the decking project should be tabled for further discussion, and a more cost-effective solutions to the issue should be explored.“I think it’s a big waste of money,” Stickle said. “I think there are better, less costly options available to our residents that will achieve the same effect.”Stickle believes if the public was surveyed, Monmouth Beach residents would come out against the improvement project.“The last time the mayor wanted to sink a couple million into the beach was about 10 years ago, and the town got a petition signed to put a referendum on the ballot, and the project got shot down pretty dramatically,” Stickle said. “I think there’s a lack of communication and understanding as to what a lot of the residents in town think should be done up there.”Howard countered, “We’ve been communicating with our residents for years now, telling them this project was coming. I think everybody understands it. I don’t think people feel ill-informed, or that they feel passionate about this at this point,” she said.An alternate option was pitched by Courtney Wladyka at the Aug. 21 commissioner’s meeting, where the borough resident inquired about the construction of a walkway that would run the length of the seawall with protective hand rails affixed on both sides.Wladyka said she took the idea from the recent sea-walk developed in nearby Sea Bright, which spans the municipality’s downtown business district offering access to beachfront bars, restaurants, and parking lots.At the meeting, Monmouth Beach Borough Administrator Judy Wilson said the cost of running a concrete slab and handrails the length of the 650-foot seawall extension would be approximately $203,000 ($87,000 for the concrete slab, and $116,000 for the handrails).“I think it was an excellent idea, and it can certainly remain under consideration, but I have considered it, and it comes down to this; what are we trying to accomplish?” Howard said. “Sea Bright is trying to create a destination, and it’s completely different from what we’re trying to maintain here.”Howard also cited potential security and safety risks a seawall walkway would pose for the youth of Monmouth Beach.Though the borough did appropriate $1.8 million for the project, Howard said that the final cost can’t be known until it’s put out to bid. However, she is hopeful the bids will come in lower than the $1.4 million that was bonded for.Stickle said of the bidding process, “When it comes up for a vote to approve a contract to get it built, I’m going to vote for what the residents want, whatever that may be.”Engineering plans for the construction of the deck have been completed and mailed to residents within 200 feet of the project site. Those plans are available for public viewing at the front desk of the Monmouth Beach Bathing Pavilion.This article was first published in the August 30-Sept. 6, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more
