Water quality and farming to be discussed at upcoming event

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Agriculture and water quality flow together. So do Ohio’s efforts to improve them.The next Environmental Professionals Network (EPN) breakfast program will look at those ties and at new progress in serving the state’s farmers, food and water.The event, which is open to the public, is Sept. 12 at The Ohio State University.Food and agriculture combined are Ohio’s No. 1 industry, adding more than $105 billion to the state’s economy every year, according to the Ohio Department of Agriculture.But that industry also is a contributor to the harmful algal blooms that have plagued Lake Erie and other Ohio water bodies in recent years. Phosphorus runoff from fertilizer and manure can help fuel the pea-green, sometimes-toxic blooms, which can hurt tourism, property values and drinking water safety.The event, which is called “Agriculture and Water Quality Issues: OSU Research and Agency Initiatives Guide Farmers’ Solutions,” will feature these speakers:Cathann A. Kress, who became Ohio State’s vice president for agricultural administration and dean of its College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) in May.Libby Dayton, research scientist in CFAES’s School of Environment and Natural Resources (SENR) who leads a phosphorus-monitoring project called On-Field Ohio.Kirk Hines, chief of the Ohio Department of Agriculture’s (ODA) Division of Soil and Water Conservation.last_img read more

Men’s team stuns Japan, assures India of historic TT medal at Asian Games

first_imgBy Bharat Sharma Jakarta, Aug 27 (PTI) The Indian men’s team did almost the unthinkable by beating fancied Japan 3-1 in the quarterfinals to assure the country its first-ever medal in table tennis in the history of the Asian Games here today. For the Indians, it did not matter if Japan’s top three players were missing from the competition. “At the end of the day, it is an Asian Games medal. I never dreamt of it,” veteran Achanta Sharath Kamal, who has been India’s top table tennis player for close to 15 years, told PTI. Until tonight, India did not have a single medal in the sport which was introduced in the Games program in 1958. The likes of China (61 gold), Japan (20) and South Korea (10) swept the medals for long time. Word number 33, Sharath, blanked world number 19 Kenta Matsudaira 11-8, 12-10, 11-8 in the only singles he needed to play tonight. Rising star G Sathiyan, ranked 39, delivered on the big stage, winning both his singles against 28th ranked Jin Ueda and Matsudaira. Sathiyan hammered Ueda in straight games and took four games to get the better of Matsudaira. “We had come close to beating Japan in the Asian Championships last year. So it is not as if it was completely unexpected. We were on the right track. We have a solid team now,” said multiple time CWG gold medallist Sharath. Winning the quarterfinals in the night against a strong opponent like Japan was a mighty feat, considering the team had played two pool matches against Macau and Vietnam earlier today.advertisement The men had lost to Chinese Taipei 2-3 yesterday to finish second in the group. Earlier, in the women’s team event, India lost to Hong Kong 1-3 in the quarterfinals. The Indian women were too reliant on Manika Batra, who stunned world number 20 Lee Ho Ching in the opening singles. The 57th ranked Indian beat Ching 11-9, 11-9, 5-11, 11-6. However, her teammates could not come up with special performances. Ayhika Mukherji stretched world number 13 Doo Hoi Kem before going down 14-12, 4-11, 10-12, 8-11 in the second singles. Mouma Das too took Soo Wai Yam Minnie to the full distance of five games but lost 6-11, 13-11, 11-8, 3-11, 5-11. Doo and Manika played the fourth rubber but the Hong Kong player was too good for India’s best female paddler, winning 11-8, 11-8, 13-11 to seal the tie for her side. PTI BS SSCSSClast_img read more
