Mills does sing the Indiana anthem at the start of the annual Fastest Rookie lunch the Tuesday before each Indianapolis 500, an event sponsored by Indiana dairy. And of course there is the “coolest prize” in sports, the bottle of milk presented to the race winner. It’s part of a great partnership and significant investment for American Dairy Association, Indiana. General manager Deb Osza says the return on investment for dairy farmers is unique and substantial.“We have this amazing international platform that allows us to tell our dairy farming story and our great nutrition story about milk and milk products.”For Osza it’s hard to imagine a dairy organization in another state getting similar bang for the buck.“It’s such a wonderful opportunity that we have,” she told HAT. “Every year I marvel again at how fantastic it is that we have this opportunity as a dairy promotion organization to be able to nurture the drink of milk tradition and to understand how cherished that tradition is by so many race fans the world over.”A woman was in victory circle this year, handing milk to the winning car owner, Roger Penske, and race winner Juan Pablo Montoya’s chief mechanic. It is not the first time a female has handled the prized milk bottle at the Indy 500.“Our rookie is Janet Dague and she is not the first. We’ve had Anita Schmitt and Sam Schwoeppe before her. Women do serve on the board of the American Dairy Association of Indiana and she will be the person to give the milk in victory circle at the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500, so that’s huge!”Milkman Alan Wright presented the bottle of milk, courtesy of American Dairy Association, Indiana, to Montoya at the end of the 99th running of the Indianapolis 500.(Montoya photo from Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Dairy Nurtures Indy 500 Milk Tradition Lean Hogs HEM21 (JUN 21) 122.68 0.22 Previous articleRoberts Says EPA Broke the LawNext articleMemorial Day Outlook Andy Eubank RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook Twitter Battle Resistance With the Soy Checkoff ‘Take Action’ Program Soybean ZSN21 (JUL 21) 1508.50 -35.50 All quotes are delayed snapshots Corn ZCN21 (JUL 21) 684.50 -14.50 last_img read more

  • What we’re reading: A trip to space for childhood cancer research, McConnell condemns Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene

The spacecraft, SpaceX Crew Dragon, will take off in October. The mission will be the first to travel into space without professional astronauts from NASA or other government space agencies.The 37-year-old billionaire is giving two seats to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, one of which will go to a former cancer survivor and frontline healthcare worker.The last seat will go to the lucky winner of a raffle to help raise money for St. Jude.The fundraising goal is going to be far in excess of the cost of the mission, said Isaacman.

Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA.Greene has faced backlash after she described the school shootings in Newtown, Conn., and Parkland, Fla., as staged.“Somebody who suggested that perhaps no airplane hit the Pentagon on 9/11, that horrifying school shootings were pre-staged, and that the Clintons crashed JFK Jr.’s airplane is not living in reality,” McConnell said, according to NBC.A group of House Democrats recently introduced a resolution to remove Green from her two committees, the House Education & Labor Committee and the House Budget Committee, over her controversial statements. The Rules Committee said it would take the first step towards getting the resolution to a vote on the floor on Wednesday.

The addiction recovery centers are funded by the millions of dollars in tax revenue Oregon’s legalized marijuana industry has earned. + posts Ryann Booth ReddIt Facebook In this undated image provided St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Jared Isaacman pauses while speaking about his enthusiasm for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and his spaceflight called Inspiration4, in Memphis, Tenn.

  • Characterization of Jupiter’s secondary auroral oval and its response to hot plasma injections

    first_imgWe present Jovian auroral observations from the 2014 January Hubble Space Telescope (HST) campaign and characterize the auroral second oval feature with particular attention to the response to hot plasma injections. The location of the second oval feature lies between the Ganymede and Europa moon footprint contours between 150 and 240° system III longitude, corresponding to a source in the inner magnetosphere between 9 and 13 RJ. At the examined longitudes, this is in the same region of 11–16 RJ known as the pitch angle distribution boundary, beyond which electrons are thought to be scattered into a field-aligned configuration and cause auroral precipitation. The feature is enhanced in both brightness and longitudinal spread 1–3 days after large hot plasma injections. The precipitating electrons have a higher-energy and lower flux than the electrons generating large injection signatures. We suggest that wave-particle interactions are responsible for the scattering of electrons in this region. We also suggest that the plasma injections can act as a temperature anisotropy and particle source to enhance electron scattering into the aurora and the brightness of the second oval feature. Changes to the magnetic field topology around an injection may also generate shear Alfvén waves and therefore accelerate electrons parallel to the magnetic field resulting in precipitation.last_img read more

  • US Navy Equips USVs with Non-Lethal Weapons for Fleet Experiment

    first_img February 6, 2012 View post tag: Non-Lethal View post tag: Experiment View post tag: USVs Training & Education View post tag: with View post tag: Navy U.S. Fleet Forces Command (USFF) directed a follow-on fleet experiment this week off the shoreline of Fort Eustis to explore capabilities for unmanned surface vessels (USVs) to deploy non-lethal weapons during maritime security and force protection operations.“Equipping unmanned surface vessels with non-lethal weapons will further expand the capabilities of our Naval forces to confront an increasingly complex set of threats,” Rear Adm. Scott Craig, USFF Deputy Chief of Staff for Fleet Policy, Capabilities Requirements, Concepts, and Experimentation said. “Results from this experiment will be relevant not only to the U.S. Navy, but also to other Services, coalition partners and allies.”Operating in autonomous and semi-autonomous modes, the small militarized boats are equipped to employ a directional acoustic hailer, eye dazzling laser and flash-bang munitions; each non-lethal weapon was carefully-orchestrated to respond to a set of threatening behaviors from intruder vessels.During Trident Warrior 2011, held in July, the USVs’ ability to autonomously react to vessels traveling in protected waterways were previously tested and validated.Cmdr. Mike Frantz, USFF’s Director for Fleet Experimentation, explained the importance of experimenting with real assets in an operational environment.“The Fleet Experimentation program allows the Navy to partner with commercial and government organizations to address and obtain solutions where critical maritime capability gaps exist,” said Frantz. “We each have a different piece of the solution and while laboratory experiments form the foundation of the technology development, the ability to experiment with that technology, at sea, in realistic scenarios, is crucial if you want the end result to be relevant to the Fleet Commander’s need.”More than 100 successful runs were completed over the course of the week. Experiment control collected geo-positional data from the boats, surveys from fleet users and observer logs from subject matter experts. The results are expected to drive recommendations to Navy decision makers.“No one is firing at us here in Virginia, nor are they trying to detonate any explosives near our ships, but these types of malicious scenarios drive our requirement to be prepared for the next time they do,” Frantz said. “Getting this defensive capability into the hands of warfighters to counter that aggression will be a game-changer for our forces when they are operating in dangerous waterways.”Participants for this event include USFF, the Navy acquisition community, several components of Naval Sea Systems Command, commercial industries and academia. The Fleet Experimentation plan continues in June with the start of the annual Trident Warrior experimentation series. This year’s Trident Warrior is multi-phased and will be integrated with several large joint and multinational exercises in the West Coast operating areas.[mappress]Naval Today Staff , February 06, 2012; Image: navy View post tag: Naval View post tag: Weapons View post tag: News by topic View post tag: US US Navy Equips USVs with Non-Lethal Weapons for Fleet Experiment View post tag: Equips Back to overview,Home naval-today US Navy Equips USVs with Non-Lethal Weapons for Fleet Experiment View post tag: fleet Share this articlelast_img read more

  • Two Tropical Storms at Work in the Atlantic
