Long-time Trump family associate Lynne Patton accepted a key role with the Department of Housing and Urban Development recently.Patton, who previously served as Vice President of Eric Trump’s charity foundation and spent eight years working closely with the Trump family, will join Dr. Ben Carson as a senior advisor and director of the Office of Public Liaison at HUD, according to a story posted on The Daily Mail.Patton will serve as a close advisor to HUD Secretary nominee Carson, were he to be confirmed by the Senate. It is as of yet unknown when the Senate will have its full vote on Carson, following his approval by the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee.She said in a statement she chose the HUD post because she believes that she can make an immediate difference in minority lives alongside Dr. Carson.“I chose HUD because not only has our President and his Administration made promises to the African-American, hispanic & Native American communities during the campaign, but I have too and I know that Dr. Carson has,” she said. “I believe that at HUD, we can make a more immediate and significant impact in bringing those promises to fruition.”As a public liaison, Patton wouldn’t have control over grants, regulations, or low-income subsidies, but would travel with Carson and serve as a senior advisor.Senators pressed Carson during his confirmation hearing about the possibilities that President Donald Trump’s business organization could benefit from HUD decisions.’Can you assure me that not a single taxpayer dollar that you give out will financially benefit the president-elect or his family?’ asked Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) during Carson’s Banking Committee confirmation hearing.’I can assure you that the things that I do are driven by a sense of morals and values, and therefore I will absolutely not play favorites for anyone,’ Carson said.Patton spoke at the Republican National Convention on behalf of Trump.’The Trump family that I know is, without question, one of the most generous, compassionate and philanthropic families I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing and the honor to call friends,’ Patton says in a video played at the convention.’They have been incredibly loyal to me and to the countless dedicated people they employ around the world-hiring more minority and female executives than any other company for which I’ve ever worked,’ she said.

Super Bowl 53: Rams’ Sean McVay admits ‘I definitely got outcoached’

first_img“I’m pretty numb right now. I definitely got out-coached.” – Sean McVay(via @Sheena_Marie3)pic.twitter.com/hLtCYo5wzM— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) February 4, 2019Talk about stepping forward to take ownership of a bad situation. That kind of attitude is one of the reasons the 33-year-old McVay is already one of the most respected coaches in the league after only two seasons as the Rams’ leader. Rams coach Sean McVay fell on the proverbial sword by taking full responsibility for his team’s Super Bowl loss Sunday night.“I’m pretty numb right now. Definitely I got outcoached,” McVay said. “I didn’t do nearly good enough for our football team.” Super Bowl 53: Three takeaways from the Patriots’ win over the Rams Super Bowl 53: Three reasons why the Rams lostcenter_img “Congratulations to the Patriots, they did a great job. Coach Belichick did a great job,” McVay said. There’s plenty of blame to go around in any loss. And it’s not like this was a debacle for the Rams. Halfway through the fourth quarter the Rams and Patriots were tied 3-3 and it was still anyone’s game to win. But even if McVay is right, there’s certainly no shame in getting outcoached by the Patriots’ Bill Belichick, who won his sixth Super Bowl championship with the 13-3 victory.

Half-time: QPR 0 Sheffield Wednesday 0

first_imgTjaronn Chery went closest to scoring for QPR during a first half which ended with Sheffield Wednesday’s Modou Sougou being stretchered off.Chery met Sandro’s volleyed diagonal pass with a crisp volley of his own, but his effort from the left-hand edge of the penalty area went wide of the near post.Chery saw another shot deflected wide and Jay Emmanuel-Thomas had a shot saved by Wednesday keeper Keiran Westwood.At the other end, Barry Bannan blazed wastefully wide after cutting inside Nedum Onuoha.And shortly before the interval, Clint Hill slipped and then poleaxed Sougou with a crunching last-ditch challenge to prevent the Owls winger pouncing on the loose ball 30 yards from goal.Chris Ramsey made three changes to the QPR side, with Hill, Massimo Luongo and Daniel Tozser coming in for Gabriele Angella, Leroy Fer and Karl Henry.QPR: Green, Onuoha, Hall, Hill, Konchesky, Sandro, Tozser, Phillips, Luongo, Chery, Emmanuel-Thomas.Subs: Smithies, Angella, Fer, Faurlin, Doughty, Hoilett, Henry.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Ohio corn testing positive for vomitoxin

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest An increasing number of reports are coming in of corn testing positive for vomitoxin, with levels as high as six to 10 parts per million in some cases. Some of these numbers are taking producers by surprise.Although the weather has been favorable for ear rot development, and consequently, grain contamination with vomitoxin, test results could be misleading in some cases, and may even be incorrect. Since there is not much that can be done about grain contaminated with mycotoxins, you should at least check to make sure that you got a fair test. Get a second opinion if needed.There are several things about the mycotoxin testing process that could lead to inaccurate results, including how samples are drawn and handled. Remember, the number of ears infected within a field and the number of kernels infected on a given ear are highly variable. As a result, moldy grain and vomitoxin levels vary considerably within the grain lot. There are always “hot spots” and these may affect the accuracy of sampling and testing for vomitoxin. For instance, if a single sample is drawn and the location from which it is drawn happens to be a hot-spot, then the level of contamination of the lot will be overestimated. Conversely, if the sample misses the hot spots completely, vomitoxin contamination may be underestimated. Poor sampling may result in considerable variation in test results, and could be the cause of some grain rejections.If you have questions and concerns about how the samples were drawn and the test results, pull another sample and get a second opinion from an independent lab. Before pulling samples for toxin analysis, grain handlers should first protect themselves from dust and toxin exposure by wearing a mask, goggles and gloves. Careful attention to sampling, extraction and testing protocol should be followed to accurately measure vomitoxin accumulation in grain. To collect a representative sample from the bin or truckload of grain, five to 10 subsamples should be randomly collected from multiple locations. Samples taken only from the central or outer portions of the load or from the beginning and end of the grain stream will not provide an accurate estimate of toxin contamination. For end-gate sampling, sample from the entire width and depth of the stream. For probe sampling, use hand or mechanical probes to sample from the entire bin, in an “X”-shaped pattern, for example. The use of suction or air probes is not recommended when sampling grain for mycotoxins. Once subsamples are obtained, bulked, and cleaned, the grain must be ground uniformly, in a clean grinding apparatus, to resemble flour. Finer particle size increases surface area of the grain and allows for more efficient extraction of vomitoxin.The most common test for vomitoxin is an ELISA test. These kits are very specific for the toxin being tested (vomitoxin in this case) and will not provide estimates of other toxins in the sample. There are separate kits for each toxin. ELISA-based tests are generally qualitative, providing a yes/no answer for the presence of DON, or semi-quantitative, giving an estimate of DON above certain levels or within a given range. However, quantitative estimates can also be obtained using some ELISA-based test. A color-change will be indicative of vomitoxin presence in the sample. To quantify toxin concentration an additional step of assessing color quality through a well reader or spectrophotometer is required.There is a relationship between the intensity of color in the sample cup and vomitoxin, as determined by a standard curve included in the kit. ELISA tests are easy, quick and affordable, but must be performed carefully to ensure quantifiable and accurate results. Due to the test’s specificity, you must use an ELISA kit specifically designed to detect vomitoxin. In addition, the ELISA kit must be approved for the substrate to be tested (corn, DDGs, wheat, etc).In addition to resampling and retesting, here are a few guidelines to help minimize further mold development and toxin accumulation in storage:1.    Dry harvested grain to 15% moisture and below to prevent further mold development in storage.2.    Store dried grain at cool temperatures (36 to 44 degrees F) in clean, dry bins. Moderate to high temperatures are favorable for fungal growth and toxin production.3.    Periodically check grain for mold, insects, and temperature, and send grain samples for mycotoxin analysis.4.    Avoid storing severely affected grain for too long especially since it becomes much more difficult to keep grain cool and dry as outside temperatures increase in the spring and summer.See Fact Sheet # PLPATH-CER-04 for more on sampling, testing, and storage for vomitoxin in corn: http://ohioline.osu.edu/factsheet/plpath-cer-04.last_img read more
