African farmers’ sorghum success

first_imgAfricans are old hands at growingsorghum. Apart from using it for beer, it’soften a staple in many households, whereit is used for porridge, baking bread, andon farms for animal fodder.Tamara O’ReillyA five-year project by two European brewing giants to help farmers in Africa to grow and harvest sorghum in quantities needed to produce beer commercially has proven to be more successful than anticipated.Dutch brewer Heineken and British drinks group Diaego, who make beer and non-alcoholic drinks throughout the continent, teamed up with the Brussels-based European Cooperative for Rural Development (Eucord) in 2006 to empower farmers in Sierra Leone and Ghana to produce high-quality sorghum for use in their and other breweries.According to their website, Eucord is a Brussels based non-profit organisation whose mission is to improve the livelihood of poor people in developing countries by linking them to the market place for ideas, information, technology, goods and services.Before the project began the breweries would import barley (the grain traditionally and widely used to make beer) to their plants in Africa to make beer, but rising transport costs demanded they find cheaper alternatives that would also be readily available. Although barley is one of the world’s most common grains, it is not widely grown in Africa, growing best in countries with cooler climates such as Russia and Canada.Since sorghum is the most common substitute ingredient to barley, Africa’s warm climate is conducive to growing the grain and breweries say clients can’t tell the difference between the two finished products, the parties involved combined social investment with business savvy and began this project.According to an article published in Business Day on 27 February, Heineken and Diaego were apprehensive at first about relying on local farmers for a constant supply of the grain but with the right implements and training provided to them, the farmers have proven to be reliable suppliers. Eucord trained the farmers in cultivation methods that helped to yield large crops of good quality sorghum and arranged access to finance so that farmers could buy seeds and the fertilisers that are needed.In just over a year, the 1 000 Ghanaian farmers involved exceeded the expected output by 100 tons – producing 800 tons of usable grain, while Sierra Leone who produced just 40 tons despite double the number of farmers also pleasantly surprised the projects mangers. Next year Sierra Leone is expected to triple that amount.According to Eucord, the total cost of this project is estimated at US$2.9-million, half of which is granted by the Common Fund for Commodity, a branch of the United Nations.Africans are old hands at growing the grain. Apart from using it for beer, it’s often a staple in many poor households where it is used for porridge and baking bread, and on farms for animal fodder.Sorghum-brewed beer is becoming popular in other parts of the world. Last year American brewery Anheuser-Busch began widely selling this type of beer there, and for some smaller beer makers like Lakefront Brewery also in the US, their sorghum beer is their bestselling product.Useful linksEucordUnited NationsHeineken South African Brewerieslast_img read more

More than 1500 people told us where and why they marched for science

first_img A near-even mix of veteran protesters, newbies, and Women’s March on Washington participants—and relatively oldThe poll indicates that more than 60% of respondents had either attended the Women’s March on Washington (35%) earlier this year or had gone to past political protests or issue-oriented marches (nearly 29%). (The survey choices were mutually exclusive.) The remaining? Thirty-six percent were attending their first such event.Only 10% of respondents said they were 25 or under—though anecdotally, news reports and social media-shared photos showed plenty of children and teenagers with parents or teachers. The rest of the age distribution was then close to equal among the other brackets provided. Twenty-seven percent said they were 26–35, 29% said 36–50, and 33% said they were 51 or older.The big question: Why? More than Trump … really?It’s probably no surprise that most respondents were very or extremely concerned about the future of science. On a scale of 1 to 5 to rank their concern, nearly 52% chose 5 (extremely concerned) and another 36% chose 4.We tried to pin down more specific motivations for marching by asking people to pick the most compelling of four options. The top choice (48%) was “I believe science is required to solve the planet’s pressing problems.” Only 20% said they marched to “protest President Trump’s science-related policies or statements.” Many have argued that the march is mainly about Trump—a sentiment that our premarch discussions with protesters around the world reinforced to some extent. So either march organizers successfully persuaded crowds to accept that this was a nonpolitical event, or people wanted to log a more affirmative answer in our poll. About 16% labeled science funding cuts as their biggest motivation, whereas only a few (3%) said that they marched because of how science had “helped my life.”And now?In our final question, more than 900 people also left comments about their favorite signs or march moments, estimated the crowd size where they were or elaborated on why they participated. (Those comments can be seen in the detailed summary.) A few expressed reservations about the day—“Scientists are part of the problem and have not realised it. The March was excellent for those who already support science, but it was not inviting for those who don’t.” And some of the respondents looked forward instead of back. “This was a stimulating day, but it is only ONE day,” one person wrote. “Everyone needs to continue the momentum in their own way.” Live updates from the global March for Science From New Zealand to Mexico City, Science covered the March for Science as it happened. Bill Douthitt So take these results for what they are. For those who want to see more of the data, here’s a detailed summary, which includes the additional comments we allowed about why people were marching, and here’s the full data set in spreadsheet format.Who marched? Many outside Washington, D.C., and many nonscientistsWe may never know how many folks attended this global rally for science. Some back of the envelope calculations here at ScienceInsider suggest 500,000 to 1 million is a reasonable guess. But organizers exaggerate, crowd analysis is a formidable challenge, officials are often reluctant to give out estimates, and aerial photos in major U.S. cities were compromised by weather. More than 1500 people told us where and why they marched for science Michael Heaney, a political scientist at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor who also surveyed Washington, D.C., march attendees, says he’s confident that at least 100,000 showed up over the course of the day, and marches in other major U.S. cities reported or estimated crowds in the thousands to many tens of thousands. There were about 600 registered marches globally, some with just a few people, but a significant number of European cities drew thousands. (For what it’s worth, here’s Wikipedia’s compilation of estimated attendances.)Of 1573 responders to our poll, a large majority said they were in the United States: Two hundred and forty-five attended the Washington, D.C., march, whereas another 812 said they rallied elsewhere in the country. Among the nearly 500 responses recording a march in another country, France (164 response), the Netherlands (80), Germany (60), and the United Kingdom (41) topped the poll turnout. We did at times tweet the survey link to specific march Twitter hashtags, so that certainly skewed the location distribution.Assuming all these people truly marched—not a given; a handful of people checked into our survey Friday night before the marches began, and bad weather may have discouraged them in the end—it’s fun to wonder what percentage of total marchers the poll captured. Even one in 1000 or higher would corroborate the idea that the global marches drew more than 1 million people.Nearly 22% of responders said they were academic researchers, and another 7% labeled themselves as industry or government researchers. Science educators represented 10% of the responses and science students (from undergraduate to Ph.D.) were also well-represented at more than 16%. Almost 23%, however, said they were in nonscience professions. Science marchers in Washington, D.C. Nearly a third of attendees at the March for Science last weekend were at their first political or issue protest, one-fifth work outside of the sciences, and most say, whether you believe them or not, that U.S. President Donald Trump was not their primary reason for gathering, an online poll conducted by ScienceInsider indicates.Several research teams braved the chill and rain to conduct formal scientific surveys of people attending the Washington, D.C., March for Science, but ScienceInsider stayed in our cozy offices and invited the marchers to come to us and tell us where and why they took to the streets. Nearly 1600 people accepted that invite, filling out a short online survey that we ran from the start of the New Zealand march—Friday night U.S. time—through Tuesday afternoon.Such internet polls are always difficult to decipher, warn social scientists, not least because they draw a nonrandom response. “You just have a bunch of people who care a whole lot about the issue, or what could be called a self-selected biased sample based on convenience.” cautioned sociologist Dana Fisher of the University of Maryland in College Park, who conducted one of the Washington, D.C., surveys, in an email. “The findings CANNOT be generalized to participants at any one March 4 Science or to the population of participants as a whole (or to the samples that we collected since our sampling methodology was very different and was used to be able to attempt to collect a random sample of participants).”Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*) A.

Ichiro Suzuki Will Not Play For Japan In WBC

Ichiro Suzki of the New York Yankees, the best player to play in the Major Leagues, told Japanese baseball officials on Monday he has decided not to take part in next year’s World Baseball Classic.“I appreciate being asked to play for Japan again at the WBC,” Suzuki said. “But after the second tournament in 2009 I never considered playing in the third event. My feelings have not changed to this day, and it’s where things stand.”The 39-year-old Suzuki, who was instrumental in helping Japan win the WBC in 2006 and 2009, joins fellow Japanese major leaguers Yu Darvish of the Texas Rangers and Norchika Aoki of he Milwaukee Brewers in opting out of the March 2-19 tournament.Suzuki, a free agent, was traded from the Seattle Mariners to the Yankees in July. Yankees’ pitcher Hiroki Kuroda, another free agent, also said Monday he would not play in the 2013 WBC.Suzuki hit .322 in 67 games for the Yankees and was one of the team’s most consistent hitters.In the final of the 2009 WBC, Suzuki drove in the winning run with a line drive to center in the 10th inning as Japan beat South Korea 5-3 to claim its second straight title.With many major league players opting out, Japan will likely field a team made up entirely of players from the domestic professional league.Japan beat first-round WBC opponent Cuba in two exhibition games on the weekend by scores of 2-0 and 3-1 with players from the Central and Pacific leagues.Japan opens defense of its WBC title on March 2 in Pool A in Fukuoka, Japan, where it will face Cuba, China and a yet-to-be-determined qualifier. read more

Cam Newton Leads Panthers to Playoffs For 1st Time

Photo by nola.comAll the talk of Cam Newton’s status as a top-flight NFL quarterback can cease. All that was left for him to quiet critics was to lead his team into the playoffs. Sunday, he did just that, and in dramatic, heroic fashion, too.Needing a touchdown to defeat the New Orleans Saints, the Panthers got the ball at their 35 yard line with just 55 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, with no timeouts. Throw in that Newton had a bad ankle and Carolina’s top receiver, Steve Smith, was out with a knee injury.Still, Newton was unfazed. He told his teammates in the huddle before the drive: “Let’s get it done.”With calm and talent, Newton did just that. He had passed for just 116 yards to the point, but completed a 37-yard pass to Ted Ginn Jr. Then he fired to Greg Olsen for 14 yards. Newton spiked the ball to stop the clock. Then he threw the game-winning 14-yard touchdown pass to seldom-used Dominik Hixon, who made a diving catch that produced a 16-10 win and the Panthers’ first playoff berth since 2008.The building rocked.“We just kept fighting, kept pounding, kept getting after it,” Newton said. “We really knew we were one drive away. We were one play away.”That play will be etched in minds of Panther fans for a long time, for its significance and how close it was to not being a catch. Newton fired a laser where only Hixon could get to it. He extended himself, got his hands under the ball and maintained possession as he rolled over. The play was reviewed. . . and confirmed.”I was 99 percent sure it was a catch,” Hixon said with a grin.Ultimately, the win was about Newton.”Cam was very resilient,” coach Ron Rivera said. ”He struggled all day and he knows that. But he came through when we needed him.” read more

World Cup Anxiety Reaches Its Boiling Point For The USMNT

Since 1990, qualifying for the World Cup has seemed like a birthright for the U.S. men’s national team. In the three decades since it last failed to qualify for a World Cup (1986), all of England, France, Portugal, Uruguay and the Netherlands have missed the cut at least once. In fact, largely because of the comparatively easy qualification process for teams from this part of the world, only six countries have a longer active World Cup streak than the U.S.1Argentina, Brazil, Germany, Italy, South Korea and Spain.That run may come to an end this year. After taking just 1 point from its last two matches, the U.S. is running dangerously close to being left at home when the World Cup convenes in Russia next year. What happens in the Americans’ high-stakes match against Panama in Orlando on Friday night will go a long way to determining that. Here are three three factors that will bring you up to speed on the match.1) Make no mistake — this one is really important.ESPN’s Soccer Power Index projects that if the USMNT can win, the side will have a 93 percent chance of making the tournament. But a loss cuts the U.S.’s chances down to 44 percent. Certainly defender Omar Gonzalez’s missed tackle was the biggest problem on this goal, but he was put in position to make this mistake because the U.S. midfield allowed a pass to be picked out under absolutely no pressure. The 4-4-2 formation gives the U.S. one fewer player to challenge opposition passers in midfield. What’s more, the U.S.’s back line has been shaky, which puts more pressure on the midfield to prevent the sort of attacking moves that can apply pressure on the defense.And in the last two games, the two center midfielders — first Darlington Nagbe and Michael Bradley, then Bradley and Kellyn Acosta — have been unable to disrupt opposing midfielders, who have connected on many direct forward passes. Against Costa Rica and Honduras, the U.S. conceded 21 direct attacking moves driven by long, forward passes through midfield.3I am defining direct attacks as attacking moves in which at least 60 percent of overall ball movement is directly toward goal and long forward passes as passes that travel at least 15 yards forward toward goal. In the four previous matches, the U.S. had conceded just 22 of these direct midfield attacks.The USMNT should be favored against Panama no matter the lineup, but a susceptibility to direct, central attacks doesn’t bode well. One or two good counterattacks could be enough to get Los Canaleros their result. The solution here could be some sort of single-striker system. By not playing two out-and-out-strikers, Arena would have flexibility to get another presser into midfield without limiting Pulisic positionally. Of course, this puts more of the burden on the 19-year-old to create goals by himself, but ultimately, what else is a superstar for if not that?Whatever he chooses, Arena needs to get this game right because a World Cup trip — as well as his legacy — may hang in the balance.Check out our latest club soccer predictions. In the home matches, Pulisic received 40 passes in the central area of the final third.2This refers to the area of the penalty box extended out to about 35 yards from goal. In the qualifiers on the road, he received just 11 in that area. At home, he has been free to drop back in buildup, receiving 30 passes in the defensive half, compared with 12 while away. Pulisic is distinctly a winger in away matches, with 63 percent of all his away receptions (40 out of 64) taking place in wide areas; in home matches, that figure is only 35 percent (43 out of 123).This is by design. With half the teams in the CONCACAF “Hex” qualifying group reaching the World Cup, a pattern of home wins and away draws is more than sufficient for a berth. In the recent away matches, the USMNT has taken a more conservative approach and kept Pulisic in his assigned position to protect the wing and offer a counterattacking outlet. Looking for wins at home, Arena has freed Pulisic to make plays either early in buildup (dropping back into the defensive half) or around the box (receiving passes in the center).The U.S.’s attack has thrived with such tactics, outscoring its opponents 8-2 in home matches. Even in the 0-2 loss to Costa Rica, the Americans led the expected goals tally 1.3 to 0.8, meaning that they had more opportunities despite the result. Panama was able to slow Pulisic down in its home fixture (a 1-1 draw), but he will be much harder to contain in a less tactically restricted role on Friday night — assuming that Arena and Pulisic continue this recent pattern.3) The U.S. needs to plug the holes in midfield.The U.S. lined up in a 4-4-2 formation in both of its last qualifying matches, with a pair of strikers in each (Jozy Altidore and Bobby Wood vs. Costa Rica; Clint Dempsey and Jordan Morris vs. Honduras). Two strikers, plus the use of Pulisic in a more aggressive role, should strengthen the attack, but Arena will need to tighten his midfield at the same time. The opening goal against Honduras shows why U.S. fans should be a little worried. Among the group of six in CONCACAF, Mexico has already punched its ticket to Russia, and Costa Rica needs only a single point from two matches to join El Tri. That leaves two remaining spots for the region: Third place gets the last automatic qualifier while fourth place will play in an inter-confederation playoff against either Australia or Syria. Panama is currently a point ahead of the U.S. in the table, and every team has two matches left to play. Here is how the result of this game will affect the various scenarios::A win for the U.S. against Panama would boost the Americans into the third guaranteed qualifying place with only a relatively easy trip to Trinidad and Tobago remaining. Any other result will leave the USMNT scoreboard-watching.If the two countries draw in Orlando, Panama will need only a win over an already qualified Costa Rica team to secure the third qualifying spot.A win for Panama would clinch World Cup qualification for Los Canaleros for the first time in their soccer history, leaving the U.S. sweating Honduras’s results in hope of landing in the fourth-place playoff.2) Home Pulisic is the best Pulisic.In such a huge match, the U.S. will be looking to its young superstar to step up. However, Christian Pulisic has been a very different kind of star in home and away matches. Since Bruce Arena took over for Jurgen Klinsmann, he has kept Pulisic on the wing in the team’s three away matches in CONCACAF qualifying (against Panama, Mexico and Honduras). But during the three qualifying home matches (against Honduras, Trinidad and Tobago, and Costa Rica), the Borussia Dortmund attacker has been free to roam infield in a free, creative role — and this has been true regardless of formation. In the three home matches, Pulisic had three goals and two assists. In the away matches, he had a clutch assist against Panama but has otherwise been kept off the scoresheet.Here’s a look at all of Pulisic’s pass receptions (home and away) in those six World Cup qualifying matches. read more


first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 13 Jan 2015 – Churches convened yesterday and it was not specifically for a time of prayer; the group was for the third or fourth time meeting the Financial Services Commission which now has jurisdiction over these entities financially thanks to that new law which calls for all nonprofit organizations which includes: civic, charity and church bodies to register and report. Paul Coleman, head of the Compliance Unit of the FSC chaired that meeting yesterday of the Providenciales Ministerial Fellowship which aimed to explain further to the church pastors how the FSC expects them to comply with a new piece of legislation which gives the FSC power to laud over the books and financial operations of the churches within the country. There are believed to be around 70 churches in Providenciales, well over 100 nationwide. Like the other groups, the church is finding the adjustment to this new procedure frustrating and in some cases, unheard of and intrusive to the work of the Body of Christ. Nonetheless, with an investment of around $1,500 to incorporate and pay the registration fee of the FSC all churches in the country are expected to comply by the end of February.
