Ed Ebert from the Indiana Corn Marketing Council and Indiana Soybean Alliance says the ability of the farmer to get grain from the farm to its destination in a timely and efficient manner is critical and should not be overlooked. He says bridges throughout the state are an area of concern.“If you look at the statistics today, about one out of six bridges out in the rural areas of our state right now are either in need of replacement or upgrades to handle the loads that are common now in modern agriculture. Whether it’s a semi or larger tractors and equipment.”Ebert says many rural bridges may be rated for far less weight than what it can actually support, meaning many farmers have to actively avoid those bridges to deliver their grain. But Ebert says new technology can assist local governments in making those determinations.“The technology that we’re working with, in conjunction with Indiana LTAP (Local Technical Assistance Program) at Purdue University, is a bridge testing system that uses gauges and known weights transiting across the bridge to really interview the bridge to ask it, based on the load going across it and the structure of the bridge, what that bridge is truly capable of safely handling.Ebert wants to let local officials know that this technology is available.“We are attempting to promote this technology, so we can see broader scale adoption because it’s a real efficiency issue for local governments.”If you have a bridge near you that you wish could be tested, you or your local official can contact Ebert at [email protected] By Eric Pfeiffer – Jul 18, 2018 New Technology Available to Test Rural Bridges SHARE Previous articleHouse Moves to Send Farm Bill to Conference Committee, Appoints ConfereesNext articleDennis Maple Elected to National Corn Board, Ending Long Indiana Drought Eric Pfeiffer Facebook Twitter SHARE

Two months of negotiations between Hamas and Fatah have resulted in a reconciliation and the formation of a unity government expected sometime this month For Egyptthe Gaza initiative also means a more stable Egypt As the country grapples with the fallout of the revolution and people unite behind different bannersthe Muslim Brotherhood stands at the forefront of the political game Just across the border in Gazathenthe cries for freedom cant be ignoredespecially when Hamas is an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood Life in Gaza is no walk in the park The situation has in the past got so dire that Gazans have stormed the Egyptian border to get essential supplies The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees lists light bulbscandlesmatches and books as goods refused entry Building material such as concretecement and wood are generally always prohibited into the Strip Gazans cannot export their agricultural products and the UNs Food and Agriculture Organisation states that 61 per cent of Gazans are food-insecure Its in this climate that Hamass power has become further entrenched and the organisation has often steered towards a reformist path To attain greater political legitimacyHamas has edged away from violence towards infrastructure development projects such as construction of paved roads and a water and sewerage network Schools are built and electricity supplies are better rationed Hamas is also divided between the hardliners and pragmatistsand for much of the past year there has been a move towards better governance It must be noted that Hamas has recruited independent and qualified technocrats to serve in government Despite the celebrations following the Rafah border openingthe siege will continue Rafah is just a pedestrian crossing; passengers are allowed to move freely but cargo is still prohibited and it is basic goods that the people of Gaza need the most A statement from Israelfollowing the opening of the bordermaintains its position of no cargo entry Israel thus continues to control all of Gazas cargo crossings But another development is taking place It was in May last year that international audiences saw footage of Israeli commandos storming an aid flotilla the Turkish boat Mavi Marmara and killing nine people It was then that Israelunder immense pressure from the international communityeased the blockade In the third week of this montha flotilla of 10 ships with around 1000 passengers will travel to Gazato protest the blockade It is the reaction to that flotilla that should be watched The siege of Gaza has failed Hamas has not been weakenedin fact it has cemented its power further Fatah has almost faded away in the Strip and the punished are the ordinary citizens of Gaza The Arab Spring is changing the

for a “neutral” leader to take over the body from Craig Reedie (Source: AP) Top News Tensions over the Russian doping scandal broke out into the open again on Wednesday as Olympic officials blasted the World Anti-Doping Agency and an influential powerbroker called for a “neutral” leader to take over the body from Craig Reedie WADA came under sharp attack from delegates at the general assembly of the Association of National Olympic Committees particularly over the agency’s handling of the allegations of state-sponsored Russian doping that overshadowed the buildup to the Rio de Janeiro Games In an unexpected development ANOC President Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah said reforms of the anti-doping agency will be difficult “unless we will have a neutral chair for the next three years” The sheikh proposed a resolution seeking a “neutral leadership of the reform of the organization” The move came just four days before Reedie an IOC member from Britain is scheduled to be renewed as WADA president for a second three-year term at agency meetings in Glasgow Scotland It also came less than a week after the IOC executive board said it would support Reedie’s re-election Reedie and conference delegates seemed caught off guard by Sheikh Ahmad’s comments “I found the sheikh quite difficult to understand” Reedie told The Associated Press “I wasn’t sure exactly what he said” Sheikh Ahmad also suggested the Montreal-based WADA could move to Geneva Switzerland Reedie who met privately with IOC President Thomas Bach after the conference debate said he envisions no immediate change to an independent president of WADA “I think that would be difficult to happen between now and Sunday” he said adding there was “no doubt in my mind” that his re-election will go forward this weekend Reedie said proposals for an independent WADA president had been previously put forward but with the goal of implementation in the future “That is clearly part of the governance debate” he said “If they want that to happen I will make sure that it does happen” Reedie has been WADA president since 2013 Under current rules a WADA president is elected for three years with the option of a second three-year term The presidency rotates between representatives of governments and sporting bodies The IOC told the AP on Wednesday that the executive board notified Reedie last week that it intends in the “future” to have a neutral WADA president “for the sake of the credibility and good governance” The board proposed to work with governments to change the current rotation system to clear the way for the new leadership “At the meeting Sir Craig accepted this approach and said he would not stand in the way of such a solution” the IOC said “Following this he received the support of the IOC executive board for his reappointment as WADA President” ANOC adopted a resolution at the close of the assembly Wednesday that called for the removal of sanctioning powers from WADA and discussions between the Olympic movement and governments for “the joint appointment of a neutral WADA president” No timetable was specified “It is a discussion that is going on with WADA” ANOC secretary general Gunilla Lindberg said “When it will happen nobody knows” Critics have accused Reedie of having a conflict of interest in his IOC and WADA roles In addition to WADA president he was an IOC vice president and member of the rule-making executive board until the Rio Games However Reedie’s term as vice president and board member has expired and he is now a regular IOC member without a policy-making role The IOC executive board offered its support for Reedie’s continued role but only after he promised to “respect the rules and responsibilities of WADA and its stakeholders” That suggested the IOC wants to make sure WADA will refrain in the future from publicly calling for a nation to be barred from the Olympics as it did with Russia before the games in Rio de Janeiro Wednesday’s meeting in Doha reignited the conflict between WADA and the Olympic movement over Russian doping The two sides fell out before and during the Rio Games following a report by WADA investigator Richard McLaren that detailed state-sponsored doping in Russia including manipulation of samples at the 2014 Sochi Winter Games and cover-ups of positive tests across dozens of summer and winter Olympic sports WADA recommended that the entire Russian team be excluded from Rio The IOC rejected the proposal and instead let international sports federations decide which athletes should be eligible to compete The sides appeared to bury the hatchet last month at an Olympic summit in Lausanne where IOC leaders backed WADA to continue to oversee worldwide anti-doping efforts and gave the agency increased powers to lead the fight All parties agreed that an independent body under WADA’s umbrella should be set up to carry out global drug-testing But on Wednesday delegates criticized WADA on several fronts saying its investigations were harming the image of the Olympic movement They again complained about the timing of the McLaren report which came out a few weeks before the Rio Games and generated massive media coverage “What is the objective of WADA” Spanish Olympic Committee chief Alejandro Blanco said “It must not be to tell sports institutions what they should be doing like telling the IOC to sanction all Russian athletes We have to ensure we are not affected by opinions which create a bad image of us in sport” The ANOC resolution reiterated support for the IOC’s call not to impose a total ban on Russia saying “it was the right decision that balanced the principles of individual justice and collective responsibility” McLaren is scheduled to release his final report next month focusing on the Sochi doping scandal Sheikh Ahmad and other delegates also attacked WADA for announcing the suspension of Doha’s doping lab on Monday on the eve of the ANOC assembly Reedie apologized for the timing saying it was not intentional For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by The Indian Express | Published: August 12 2011 12:34 am
