Putting farm safety into practice

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The National Farm Safety and Health Week is observed every third week of September. This commemorative week has been practiced for 73 years, with the first observation being in 1944 when President Franklin D. Roosevelt was in office. Ohio will celebrate this week on Sept. 17 though Sept. 23, 2017.The theme “Putting Safety into Practice” reminds us that it is everyone’s responsibility to practice safety — on the farm and on the road. The U.S. Department of Labor calculates the death rate for agricultural workers to be higher than other workforces. Knowing that agriculture is a dangerous industry — this includes farming, forestry and fishing — it is important for workers to practice safety.As the theme suggests, practicing safety is something we should do, not something we merely say. When safety is a part of our lifestyle and our workplace routine, it becomes a way of life. Employees and employers should work together recognize and reduce potential hazards.The Ohio State University Agricultural Safety and Health Program promotes this commemorative week, but also has materials available throughout the year. A variety of outreach resources are developed for different farm operations, large or small, and a wide range of workforce ages, including safety messages for children or visitors who may not work on the farm. Many of these resources are provided at no cost on the website. Training programs are also available for agricultural groups and businesses looking for specific workplace issues. A monthly newsletter is published each month called Ag S.T.A.T.  This online publication shares short announcements of upcoming safety events, as well as delivers short safety messages for that particular time of year.All of these materials are available through the OSU Ag Safety Program website: or Facebook at OSU Ag Safety and Health.The OSU safety staff will also be at Farm Science Review, located within OSU Central on the exhibit map. Stop by and watch our Grain C.A.R.T. demonstrations, look for hazards at the Farm Safety Scene hazard hunt, see new safety features for ATV’s and UTV’s, answer questions about how youth are safely employed on your farm, and attend daily sessions on farm equipment modifications in the AgrAbility tent. Our safety team is available all three days of the Review to answer your specific questions.Practicing safety is something we all do in agriculture. Having a commemorative week is just a reminder of this, no matter the week or the season.Dee Jepsen, Associate Professor, can be reached at 292-6008 or [email protected]  This column is provided by the OSU Department of Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering, OSU Extension, Ohio Agricultural Research & Development Center, and the College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.last_img read more

Oracle Databases and Storage

first_img“Storage is growing much faster than the revenues and profits of companies” said Ari Kaplan, president of the Independent Oracle User’s Group (IOUG).  Storage demand is being driven by regulatory compliance, increased business transactions, and buisiness intelligence, and the bulk of the increased data is unstructured, in the form of graphics. audio, video and emails.The IOUG conducted a survey in September 2006 of 366 respondents in Oracle shops with more than 5000 employees, 57% of which were database or systems administrators.  31% of those reporting have databases larger than one terabyte.92% expect that their database storage needs will increase in 2007 and 20% says the increase will be more than 50%60% report that database performance has been impacted because of lack of available storage20% had great uncertainty in estimating future storage requirements for ‘non-traditional’ unstructured data.  Many of those interviewed buffered their estimated storage needs by 10-25% to account for any unexpected storage need ‘surges’.Database administrators usually have a better sense of estimating storage requirements and they have become more involved in making decisions about storage that in the past may have been handled by different groups within IT.  This is another example of how traditional IT responsibilities are being shared with other business organizations.As storage grows and terabyte-plus databases become commonplace, one problem noted is that disk drives are having a hard time keeping up with application processing requirements.  Balancing capacity and performance requirements has become a major challenge for many organizations.On a related topic, this month Oracle is backing away from any storage vendor-specific support.  Oracle announced that they are dropping certifications specific to specialized storage products.  In the past, the Oracle Storage Compatibility Program (OSCP) certified compatibility of storage products with Oracle software.  Oracle’s comment is that storage technologies are mature and well understood and certifications are no longer needed.Simultaneously, Oracle has also dropped their “Resilient Low-cost Storage Initiative“.  Although the exact reason for why they discontinued this program is not clear.last_img read more

Fytch: It’s Not Social Browsing, It’s Social Commenting

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#Product Reviews#web 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Using a feature called Fytch channels, you can find sites based on category as opposed to a specific URL. For example, there are channels like “Sports,” “Computers and the Web,” “Travel and Going Out,” etc. Supposedly, you can track topics with a special button but – call us blind – we didn’t see it. Instead, Channel pages seem to feature Digg-like voting buttons for promoting comments up or voting them down. Also, when browsing the specific channel’s page, if you click on a particular headline, you’ll see options to add that site to either “My Favorites” or “My Radar.” Unfortunately, these choices are a bit confusing since there doesn’t seem to be a specific section of the pop-up dashboard for tracking favorites (it’s only on the website itself), and clicking “My Radar” will actually have you then tracking the comments by that user on the site, not all the comments on the site itself. More useful is the “Add Website to My Radar” option, which lets you enter in the URL of a site to track instead. We wish an option to track a website would be added to the main Fytch toolbar, though. Finally, on the Fytch website, a section called “The Pulse” tracks hot topics in a hand-picked list of sites with a lot of Fytcher comments. Issues and ChallengesAlthough you have the option to choose between English and German on the site’s homepage, this preference doesn’t copy over to the comments themselves as you browse around the site’s Channels. That means you’ll end up seeing a lot of comments in the language you didn’t choose. For now, German seems to be more popular – probably because the company is based there. Another problem we experienced was removing a user we were tracking in Fytch. Although the user appeared on our My Fytch page, going to their profile didn’t give us the option to “unfollow” them, only the option to follow them (but we already were!). As it turns out, the “remove” option for deleting sites and users is tucked away under a small “edit” button on the main My Fytch page. We think that’s something that should be more prominently placed on the pop-up dashboard.While Fytch does make it easy to leave comments on any website, it faces the same challenges of any new startup relying on user-inputted data: it needs more users before it really becomes attractive. Besides, the majority of the sites you would want to track have their own commenting systems already built-in. Unless you feel you’re being heavily censored there, you may not see the value in using Fytch instead, especially since your comments would be seen by a much smaller audience. However, we like the way Fytch has implemented their service – a bookmarklet! Finally, a company that thinks the browser itself is the future, not another downloadable app. Since they’re still in beta, we’ll give them time to work out the other kinks we mentioned. If you want to try Fytch yourself, you can sign up here. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… There’s also a “Fytch Dashboard” where you can track the comments on your favorite sites, your comments with replies, and your Fytch friends list. Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen multiple social browsing experiments launch with plans to unite online users to collaborate, chat, and connect as they visit various websites. Services like Me.dium and Browzmi debuted with much fanfare, but in practice, the take-up on them has been limited to a relatively small set of users. More recent initiatives, like Adaptive Blue’s Glue, have fared a little better yet still seem to attract only the core audience of early adopters. Now a new service called Fytch aims to join this group with their “social commenting” service which allows you to leave comments on any website, whether or not that site supports comments or not. Will it do any better?Why Fytch?Fytch claims their technology allows for more “freedom of speech” since you’re now able to leave comments on any site on the web even if the site doesn’t have a commenting system in place. Plus, the comments left on a site using Fytch can’t be moderated or deleted by the site’s owners. The service seems most similar to Glue, a social browsing plugin which lets you identify what books, movies, and music your friends are into by tracking users’ activities on the web and then sharing that along with your personal comments with your online network. However, unlike Glue, Fytch doesn’t operate as a browser plugin. (Glue is limited to IE and Firefox only). Instead, all that’s required to use Fytch is a browser bookmarklet. For some reason, their website identifies this as a “Safari bookmarklet” but it actually works in any web browser. Before you can start using Fytch, you have to create a Fytch account. However, you’re able to sign in using Facebook Connect, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, or OpenID, so the process is relatively painless. Using FytchTo leave a comment, the process is simple. You click the bookmarklet, then click a button on the toolbar which appears so that you can leave your comment. This activity takes place in a pop-up window of sorts which hovers over the web page itself as opposed to a sidebar window, as many co-browsing services have used in the past. sarah perezlast_img read more
