Home Indiana Agriculture News New Technology Available to Test Rural Bridges Facebook Twitter New Technology Available to Test Rural BridgesIndiana Corn Marketing Council and Indiana Soybean Alliance’s Ed EbertRural infrastructure and transportation needs were a focus at a recent Agribusiness Council of Indiana regional meeting. 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

were later) from the one sought by the vet That made wait times appear shorter 8% of schedulers created off-the-books wait lists that some VA officials have described as secret They were spread across 70% of the facilities surveyed which included all of the VA’s major hospitals Efforts to make the system work "led to an overly complicated scheduling process" that made fudging easy The 14-day goal of an initial appointment for a vet seeking care "was simply not attainable" the report said "Imposing this expectation on the field before ascertaining the resources required and its ensuing broad promulgation represent an organizational leadership failure" The 14-day target which played a role in job evaluations and resulting bonuses has been scrapped “Organizational leadership failure” is investigator-talk for Secretary Eric Shinseki who resigned May 30 after the VA inspector general found in a May 28 report that such problems more widespread than Shinseki thoughtbut not as widespread as the latest report makes clear Shinseki blamed a “totally unacceptable lack of integrity" for the rampant cheating on his watch “Individual questions were not worded to ascertain the reason that policy may have been violated” the report noted “Therefore findings from this audit cannot be extended to identify deliberate deception fraud or malfeasance” The report set off another round of criticism from lawmakers and veterans’ groups "The fact that more than 57000 veterans are still waiting for their first doctor appointment from the VA is a national disgrace" House Speaker John Boehner said “We must work together to fix the unacceptable systemic problems in accessing VA healthcare” Sloan Gibson the acting VA secretary said following the report’s release “This data shows the extent of the systemic problems we face problems that demand immediate actions” The late appointments and resulting delayed care have been linked to as many as 40 veteran deaths in the Phoenix VA facility alone “This is not just gaming the system’” said Daniel Dellinger national commander of the American Legion “Its Russian Roulette and veterans are dying because of the bureaucracy" Roughly 400 senior employees from the Veterans Health Administration which runs health-care facilities for the VA interviewed between May 12 and June 3 nearly 4000 of the VA’s 30000 junior workers involved in scheduling appointments “Site survey teams were not able to interview all employees and time did not allow assessment of intent or potential culpability” the report noted “All of the information collected from audit site visits has been shared with VAs Office of Inspector General” which is conducting a parallel probe that could lead to criminal charges The three reasons VA employees gave for the lengthy waits were lack of doctors the 14-day goal and inadequate clerical help On May 15 the VA had more than 6 million scheduled appointments with 58 million of them96%slated to take place within 30 days It also had 63869 veterans who requested an appointment to enroll in the VA system over the past 10 years “for whom an appointment has not yet been scheduled” There are an additional 57436 vets slated to wait 90 days or more for their initial appointment The VA plans to extend clinic hours pay overtime to its staff take steps to improve productivity and get additional help from outside the VA to tackle the backlog “As of today” acting VA chief Gibson said Monday “VA has contacted 50000 veterans across the country to get them off of wait lists and into clinics” Write to Mark Thompson at [email protected] worry that the first episode of Why with Hannibal Buress was a setup to get critics to make the same hack joke about the title But I am not too proud to do it Because while it’s hard to argue with the show’s who (searingly deadpan comic Buress) what (getting his own show) where (on Comedy Central) when (weekly) and how (with his notoriety as a standup a killer guest on others’ shows and Bill Cosby’s comedic assassin) the premiere left the “Why“–that is the show’s purpose and point of view–unanswered My standard caveat is that you can’t fully judge a late-night show off its first episode but ideally the kickoff gives you a context for what comes after a mission statement The first Colbert Report included his segment on “truthiness” which put a name to the kind of gut-over-head demagoguery the show would satirize Key and Peele from the outset riffed on the stars’ biraciality which would inform the sketch comedy’s it’s-complicated approach not just to race but identity and assumptions in general Inside Amy Schumer from the title told us it would focus close-up on sex and gender and would make it personal Why with Hannibal Buress on the other hand so far is simply a lot of elements you’d find in other Comedy Central shows with Hannibal Buress in them because he’s a funny guy (Contrary to the expectations of people who know him only from the news it’s not like Buress is going to dethrone a different beloved sitcom dad every week Tim Allen you’re safe for now) So there was an awkwardly funny cold open with Conan O’Brien There was standup some topical (Greece the home of Socrates went broke “like all philosophy majors”) some not (like a riff on his discomfort with male hotel housekeepers which included a quick reference to Cosby) The strongest sketch was a bit with guest Amy Schumer as a Twitter troll which made the most of a much-used scenario; the weakest a stage piece belatedly celebrating the “8th of July” did indeed seem four days long One problem may actually have to do with Buress’ strength He has a track record of being one of the best things on other people’s shows–Broad City High Maintenance The Eric André Show–in part because of his hilariously chill nonreaction reactions His zen unflappability–being a “squinty ____” as Troll Schumer put it–is the special sauce that cuts the acid note running under much of his comedy That’s what makes Hannibal Hannibal but I can see how it would be hard to translate to a show in which his job is proactive Occasionally Why captured it Another taped sketch with unarmed Buress being shot at by a white cop was overshadowed by a better one on the Key and Peele season premiere before it But the funniest thing about it was Buress’ tossed-off reaction from the stage pointing out what a terrible shot the cop was from point-blank range Buress was at his best when he was able to do that kind of meta comedy–reacting essentially to his own show even as he was making it I don’t know precisely what kind of series would best harness that skill but I suspect it would be (a la Eric André which he co-hosts) more surreal and experimental than the largely conventional formats the premiere mixed together It’s fine for Why, United Kingdom De Tijd. said Anderson, in late 2005.
