Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast September 12, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest No significant change in the forecast this morning. We continue to be very warm with temps above normal. This will continue into tomorrow before a cold front moves through. We have moisture  chances the next two days. Today its just heat based instability, and the best rain potential through most of the day stays to the north. Tomorrow, our moisture develops with a frontal boundary that finally passes through. Here are the forecast details.Today will be partly to mostly sunny and warm. Temps above normal in all ares. While we cant rule out a couple of showers, generally, the daytime hours will see the action farther north over Lake Erie and up into Ontario. Then late this afternoon and this evening, we can see some moisture over the northern third of the state, particularly NE Ohio, but even that has very spotty coverage and low totals.Tomorrow we are very warm again, as our cold front holds off until late afternoon and evening before passing through. So, sun starts the day , with clouds increasing in the afternoon. Rains from late afternoon through the overnight night will range from .1″-8″ with coverage at 75% of the state. However, it will take some stronger thunderstorms tonight to get to the upper end of the range, and that will likely be limited to northeast parts of the state, but not completely confined there. Everything is done by mid morning Saturday.We turn out partly sunny and cooler behind the front for Saturday, then stay dry with sunny to partly cloudy skies from Sunday through most of next week. The only hiccup may end up being net Friday, where we can pick up a couple of widely scattered showers, but even then, the coverage will be 30% of the state or less. Temps will climb some, and will spend most of next week near to slightly above normal, but will not be anywhere near what we are currently experiencing.10 day rain potentialIn the extended period, we have rains from next Saturday night through Sunday that can bring .25″-1″ with 80% coverage. Then another system around Wednesday the 25th triggers up to an additional half inch. Otherwise, we are dry. The extended period turns significantly cooler behind the system that passes the 21st and 22nd. Temps will be below normal, and we can see several pushes to the low 40s for lows in that time frame. It is clear that this warmer pattern is not going to hold for the long haul.last_img read more

AI-Based Framework for Agile Project Management

first_imgTags:#Agile Development#Artifical intelligence AI: How it’s Impacting Surveillance Data Storage Stephanie Donahole is working as a Business Analyst at Tatvasoft Australia a .net and web development company in australia also specialized in software development. Her aim is to sharpen her analytical skills, deepening her data understanding and broaden her business knowledge in these years of her career. Strategic Decisions and Precise Estimates. With the recent trends towards automation, machine learning and artificial intelligence as it appears that just the application of AI can not transform the enterprise computing as now, it has the power to change project management as well. A well-known core concept with AI systems is that their predictions are only as amazing as their data. Artificial intelligence has revolutionized the flow of businesses making decisions and deploying their resources.Over the past years, it has proven its worth by helping businesses to flourish in various industries. In the current times, organizations use AI to automate mundane tasks by making it possible what is once considered impossible. Let us look at how AI-powered project management can be implemented and what can be the various benefits to it. Artificial Intelligence has transformed how every business functions and software development is not exempted from it. Machine learning has helped to accelerate the traditional software development lifecycle as artificial intelligence redefines how developers build products. Usually, software development requires that you specify what you want from the system before you create it. Let us look after some essential factors which are crucial before applying AI in project management. Handles a bulk of data.The mainstream task in which AI seems to excel when compared to humans is in processing bulks of data. There are limitless examples of how team members apply AI to their work and achieve the desired results in just a few days which consumed them months and months before. Using AI for data analytics helps project managers to run their project plans smoothly as compared to past performance. Hence, if a project is long-term or has an average amount of data associated with it for another reason, then the AI software can be utilized to compile the data for making decisions to reach valuable conclusions after data mining.Cuts down Project Cost.Project management experts are always engaged in a battle to ensure that they don’t exceed the limits. Some research indicates that artificial intelligence project management interfaces help to keep costs at a manageable level in multiple ways. It is estimated that more than 50 percent of a project manager’s time goes up in administrative tasks which can be figured out by the analysts. Artificial intelligence can also visualize data and illuminate bottlenecks for the processes that could stay hidden.How to introduce ML Techniques in Agile Development?It is a well-known fact that significant application components like software interfaces and data management still utilize regular software. Howsoever, you can too introduce ML techniques into your SLDC as given: Developers also spent more time debating the features and prioritizing the products. An artificial intelligence model which is trained with data from previous development projects can help to assess how an application performs in helping business leaders and teams to identify methods of less risk and more impact. The software development field is better known for exceeding budgets and timelines. So, to make a reasonable estimate, it is crucial to have a deeper understanding of both the context and team which stands to be influential in predicting effort and budget. Coding assistants based on machine learning can help to identify patterns from previous data. The coding assistant will flag it if an engineer makes an error during software development. Hence, ML can be used to analyze logs and flag errors that need to be fixed which makes the software developer proactive in resolving errors.It generally takes a month or years to convert business requirements into the best technology. However, machine learning is reducing development time by helping out every individual to develop technologies with little to less technical knowledge.The Final VerdictThere’s no doubt in how artificial intelligence has proven to become the top business prosperity by leveraging them towards automating mundane tasks. By using artificial intelligence in software development helps to be out more business benefits. Keep Learning!

Stephanie Donahole Most of the developer’s time is spent on debugging code, and documentation reading which can be changed by using ML as the developers can get quick feedback and recommendation based on the codebase by saving a lot of time. For instance – Java’s Codota and Python’s Kite. At the same time, it is also essential to have a clean code as it makes a more natural collaboration. Refactoring becomes an extreme necessity as the maintenance of clean code can be challenging at times. To resolve this, machine learning is utilized to analyze the code for better performance.

7 days agoChelsea boss Lampard blows fuse with Deschamps over Kante treatment

first_imgChelsea boss Lampard blows fuse with Deschamps over Kante treatmentby Paul Vegas7 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea boss Frank Lampard has hit out at France coach Didier Deschamps and his medical team over their handling of N’Golo Kante.Kante will miss Chelsea’s home game against Newcastle due to a groin problem and Lampard was clearly frustrated that his midfielder, who has also been dogged by knee, ankle and hamstring issues this season, was not sent home from international duty sooner.Kante was ruled out of France’s first game after picking up the problem in the warm-up before their 1-0 win in Iceland.Lampard said: “We didn’t get him [Kante] back until after the second game [Turkey] and he’s not fit for Saturday.”Before the international break, I know Didier Deschamps mentioned in jest a little bit about Olivier Giroud and that was obviously quite light-hearted and I get it, we all have our selection problems and he had his in the two games.”But the Kante one was not a laughing matter because we communicated before the last international break because he was injured so couldn’t go.”Let’s think what benefits the player, he didn’t go, we both agreed on that. That’s how things should work.”After the first game when he pulled out, he then had a fitness test the day before the second game, it was clear that he couldn’t play.”He then sat on the bench on the evening of the game, so that’s not communication, so it’s not such a laughing matter I suppose.”And it’s more for Kante himself because he’s not an inexperienced player, he’s been around the block, he’s won World Cups, he’s been a fantastic player. I think that probably could have been handled better for sure.”Our doctors were speaking and there were some times when things weren’t coming back to us when I would expect them to come back – that’s what I mean about communication.”Even though we joked about the communication from the time before, that was much better to deal with it, as opposed to not.”We got a player back a bit later. I understand when players are on international duty, they are their player as such but it was quite clear he wasn’t fit to play.”From our point of view we would have wanted him back to work on him but it’s been and gone and as with every international player I will try and have open lines of communication with every manager for both our sake’s.”Kante, for instance, the first squad, nobody would have benefited from him going – me, him or France.”We have to think about the long-term and the care of the player as well so that’s sometimes a bit of a grey area.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Will be Indias last election if Modi is reelected Mamata

first_imgMathabhanga (Cooch Behar): Stepping up the ante against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday called him a “jhootha chowkidar” and alleged that he would “throw away” the Constitution and turn India into a totalitarian regime if he is re-elected and the upcoming Lok Sabha elections could be the last one in that case.Addressing a rally here on Thursday, Banerjee challenged Modi to win more than 125 Lok Sabha seats in the general elections across the country. She claimed that the government of the “expiry babu”, the term she has coined for the Prime Minister, will be defeated in the Lok Sabha polls after losing seats across north and central parts of the country. The people of India are sick and tired of the “fake (jhootha) chowkidar” because of his arrogance and endless lies and will replace him in the ensuing Lok Sabha elections, Banerjee said.last_img read more

Egypt car bomb at police building kills 14

first_imgBy Haitham el-TabeiMansoura — A powerful car bomb tore through an Egyptian police headquarters Tuesday, killing at least 14 people, in an attack the military-installed authorities said is aimed at derailing a democratic transition.Hours after the bombing in Mansoura, a city north of Cairo, prime minister Hazem Beblawi labelled the Muslim Brotherhood, the banned movement of ousted president Mohamed Morsi, a “terrorist” group, though the premier did not blame the organisation for the blast. The movement itself strongly condemned the attack, one of the deadliest in Egypt since the military deposed Morsi in July.The bombing comes just weeks ahead of a referendum on a new constitution billed as the first major step towards democracy after the Islamist leader’s overthrow.The bomb ripped through the multi-storey police headquarters in Mansoura shortly after 1:00 am, killing at least 14 people and wounding more than 100, officials said.“The majority of the casualties are from the police,” said Omar al-Shawatsi, the governor of Daqahleya, of which Mansoura is the capital.Daqahleya security chief Sami El-Mihi was wounded in the blast and two of his aides were killed, security officials said.The massive explosion — whose impact was felt about 20 kilometres (21 miles) away — stripped off the facade of the building and caused part of its solid structure to cave in.The wreckage of an armoured police car was nearby, while at least 10 civilian cars were damaged and a nearby building completely collapsed, said an AFP correspondent at the scene.Angry residents of the area vented their fury on Morsi’s Brotherhood movement.“The Muslim Brotherhood is an international terrorist organisation. They are responsible for what happened in Mansoura,” said Hamada Arafat, a school teacher.“They are now adopting tactics like Al-Qaeda.”Prosecutors and officials say the Brotherhood has links with Islamist militants who have stepped up attacks on security forces across Egypt, but mainly in the restive Sinai Peninsula.“This is a more sophisticated attack than previous ones. It could be a sign of things to come… the insurgency in Sinai is becoming emboldened and extending attacks outside the Sinai,” said Shadi Hamid, research director at the Brookings Doha Center.Brotherhood condemns bombingBeblawi said the bombing was an attempt to thwart the country’s steps towards democracy, and declared the Brotherhood a terrorist group.“Prime Minister Beblawi has declared the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organisation,” state news agency MENA quoted his spokesman as saying.The declaration could have significant political impact ahead of the referendum, but will not have much legal impact as the group has already been banned by an Egyptian court.In a separate statement carried by MENA, Beblawi later said: “Terrorism will not succeed in derailing the implementation of the road map”, but did not mention the Brotherhood by name.Interior minister Mohamed Ibrahim visited the site of the blast and told reporters Egypt “will not be scared, on the contrary it will reinforce our determination to fight the terrorists”.The Brotherhood condemned the bombing “in the strongest possible terms”, and also lashed out at Beblawi.“It is no surprise that Beblawi, the military junta’s puppet prime minister, has decided to exploit the blood of innocent Egyptians through inflammatory statements designed to create further violence, chaos and instability,” it said in a statement.The 85-year-old Brotherhood, a political and social movement, prevailed in a series of polls following the overthrow of longtime dictator Hosni Mubarak in 2011, and Morsi became the country’s first freely elected leader after winning elections last year.But since his ouster Egypt has been caught in a spiral of violence.He was removed from power after massive street protests against his turbulent one-year rule, with millions accusing him of power-grabbing and economic mismanagement.More than 1,000 people have since been killed in a crackdown, including hundreds on August 14 in Cairo when police stormed two protest camps of his Islamist supporters.The crackdown has seen thousands of Islamists, including the Brotherhood’s entire leadership, arrested.After Morsi’s ouster, the military-installed authorities announced a road map for a democratic transition.On January 14 and 15 the country is to hold a constitutional referendum — the first step in the plan.The charter, if approved, is to be followed by parliamentary and presidential elections by mid-2014.last_img read more
