Claxton crusher

first_imgBy Dan RahnUniversity of GeorgiaThe fledgling Farmers Oilseed Cooperative took another major step last weekend when the board of directors selected Claxton as the site for their proposed oilseed processing plant. Sales of stock in the co-op are expected to begin within the next few weeks.”This was one of the major steps we needed to take,” said Billy Wayne Sellers, president of the year-old co-op.The FOC site selection committee had narrowed a broad field of potential sites for the $55 million plant to four: Claxton, Baxley, Alamo and Cordele. While all four had much to offer, the deal-clincher came down to taxes.Tax advantage”The biggest thing was their low millage rate,” Sellers said.Rail and interstate highway connections figured into the decision, too. “They had a good package,” he said.Randy Mayfield, who chairs the Evans County Industrial Development Authority, said the oilseed crushing facility will be an important new employer for the community.”We’re pretty excited about it,” he said. The plant would employ 60 people, with 50 of those from the local area.”We’ve got three or four companies that employ that many, other than the school system and state government,” he said. “So it’s a pretty big thing to us. The payroll will be pretty good, too. These will be semiskilled and skilled jobs.”Good siteThe 80-acre Evans County site itself had a lot to offer. “The property doesn’t need much developing,” Mayfield said. “It’s pretty flat and level, with no wetlands and no trees. It should allow for some quick site preparation.”The plant will crush soybeans, canola and possibly some peanuts and sunflower seed for oils and other products.Ultimately, Sellers said, the primary crop for the crusher will be canola. University of Georgia experts have long said the winter crop has great profit potential in Georgia. But with the nearest markets in Canada, farmers have grown little of it thus far.Proven conceptThe concept behind the co-op has proven itself often in the Midwest, said UGA agricultural economist George Shumaker.With market prices at $5 per bushel, farmers who were FOC shareholders could get about 80 cents more for soybeans and $2.40 more for canola by marketing through the co-op, Shumaker said.But selling production shares to farmers, in tough economic times, is still the biggest hurdle the co-op must clear.To build the plant and begin operations, Shumaker said, FOC will need 750 to 800 shareholders with average commitments of 275 acres to the co-op. Minimum investments will be 1,500 shares at $2.25 per share.Stock salesSellers said the co-op will be working hard to begin stock sales as quickly as possible. “We hope to finish the legal work and start selling stock in the next couple of months,” he said.The FOC will sell two types of shares. Class A shares will be production stock for farmers, committing them to grow oilseed crops for the co-op and committing the co-op to buy from the farmers.Class B shares will be offered to investors, he said. The board decided to offer these shares to help raise the startup costs — primarily for the plant construction.Critical shares”These shares could be very helpful, but the production shares are the ones we’ve got to sell,” Sellers said. “We could have $100 million laying in the bank, but if we don’t have the crops committed to run the plant, we don’t have anything.”Sellers said he believes farmers will buy into it. “It offers them a way of increasing profits for their oilseed crops,” he said. “It’s cutting out the middle man.”The biggest challenge for the co-op, he said, is to “get farmers to look closely at this and see if buying stock and becoming a part of the co-op is for them.”last_img read more

Garden giving

first_imgBy Wayne McLaurinUniversity of GeorgiaI was the typical parent at Christmas time. I searched for just the right toys for my girls, the ones they wanted most.(One year on the Santa list, “Baby Heart-Beat” appeared in big, bold letters. On Christmas morning, the box had more appeal than the doll!)There were other toys over the years. (I didn’t buy an Elmo, though. Elmo is my brother, and we could talk to real Elmo any time we wanted to.) But it wasn’t the toys but the giving that was important.Christmas is a time for giving. And you know, gardeners are among the most giving of people.’I just harvested and thought of you’Think about getting a basket of produce from someone who said, “I just harvested and thought of you.” Now, you know that person had real feelings for you and wanted to share. Well, OK, maybe his spouse said, “One more squash in this house and I’ll leave you.” Either way, the gardener still was offering you something grown with his or her own hands.Other gardeners share as a group. Countless Master Gardeners in Georgia have given their time in countless ways.Master Gardeners give thousands of hours of volunteer time not only to beautification but to working with gardening, in nursing homes with the patients, in herb and butterfly gardens at schools all over the state and with projects and continuous educational activities such as plant identification and insect and disease analysis.Helping others while gardeningAll of this is done by people who are helping others while tending some of the most fantastic gardens in Georgia.There are national charitable programs, too, such as “Plant a Row for the Hungry,” in which member gardeners plant an extra row for people who need food. Over the past few years several tons of produce have been delivered to soup kitchens, shelters and other organizations that have need but little funding for fresh produce.Sure, canned food is available. But why shouldn’t people in need have fresh tomatoes, squash and potatoes. Georgia gardeners can be very proud of their contributions in this movement.Another group of gardeners out there gives and gives again. Over the years, county agents have educated you in Extension programs and your children through 4-H.’A million questions’They’ve worked with farmers, suburbanites and city people and have spoken with individuals and groups and answered “a million questions on a million topics.”How did they do this? Yes, every one of them has at least one college degree, but many do their own research for their area. They try to grow “new” plants and and save “heritage” plants.Then there was the agent who worked with lawns and golf courses. He even put a golf green in his back yard. Now that’s real dedication to your work, tearing up the flower beds to put in “research.”Just look around your neighborhood and town — so many beautiful gardens and parks. How important are they to your well-being? Try to visualize your neighborhood or town without them.Take a minuteAs you hurry about buying presents this Christmas season, take a minute to thank the gardeners you know for all they do.Don’t try to surprise them with a present. Most of us gardeners buy what we need and want. Nongardeners can seldom buy the right trowel or wheelbarrow with any more certainty than they could guess correctly our age, weight and mother’s maiden name. Most of us have a shed full of tools.The most important gift these Georgia gardeners want goes something like this:”That’s a beautiful garden you have!””Thanks for the produce you gave me last season!””I always look forward to your daffodils blooming each year!”Thank you for giving me the opportunity to write about gardening for you. Merry Christmas!last_img read more

S&P: Like utilities, smaller coal consumers also seeking other options

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Global Market Intelligence ($):Coal consumption by U.S. commercial and institutional customers and other industrial sectors has been sharply declining in recent years, echoing a drop in overall demand for thermal coal.Industrial customers and places such as universities and hospitals that burn coal to create their own heat and power are relatively small market segments, especially compared to the 665 million tons consumed by the electric power sector in the U.S. in 2017. The U.S. Energy Information Administration reported just 1.1 million tons of coal were consumed by commercial and institutional customers in 2017 while 33.3 million tons were consumed by “other industrial sectors.” That category excludes cokemaking facilities, which buy a high-quality, higher-margin grade of metallurgical coal used to make steel.Those two slivers of the U.S. coal market are on a trajectory of decline similar to the fall in overall thermal coal demand. Where the metallurgical coal market is exposed to volatile ups and downs based on global demand, other industrial, commercial and institutional coal consumers are subject to a market where environmental pressure, alternative fuel sources and the state of the economy have reduced the appeal of coal.In 2001, other industrial sector consumers used 65.3 million tons of coal to fire boilers across an array of industries that require large sources of heat or power to run their own operations. That number fell by nearly half in 2017, and the trend appears to have continued in 2018. In the first three quarters of 2018, the non-cokemaking industrial sector consumed 23.3 million tons of coal, down from 24.9 million tons of coal in the same period the year before.Commercial and institutional coal customers in the U.S. consumed about 5.1 million tons of coal in 2004, the highest level since the start of this century. Since then, the segment’s coal consumption has plunged, falling 79.3% by 2017 to 1.1 million tons. That figure was likely even lower in 2018, as the most recent EIA data shows 720,000 tons of consumption from that customer group in the first three quarters of the year compared to 771,000 tons in the first three quarters of 2017.More ($): Not just power: U.S. coal consumption in smaller domestic markets also shrinking S&P: Like utilities, smaller coal consumers also seeking other optionslast_img read more

In Colombia 4,136 Children Left Illegal Armed Groups In The Last Ten Years

first_imgBy Dialogo November 13, 2009 In Colombia, in the last ten years, 4,136 minors broke ties with illegal armed groups of leftist guerrillas and extreme right-wing paramilitaries, according to a report issued by the state Institute of Family Welfare (ICBF). The figure was made public by the state entity as part of the commemoration in Bogotá of the tenth anniversary of the program serving children who have broken ties with the internal armed conflict that has plagued the Andean nation for more than four decades. The institute’s task basically consists in providing psychosocial care to the minors in order to heal the wounds left by the war and in providing support for their primary and secondary education, and even for higher education. For its part, a report by the Colombian police indicated that according to estimates by non-governmental organizations, between 8,000 and 13,000 children and adolescents are members of illegal armed groups. The document explains, nevertheless, that “determining exact figures is complicated to the extent that cases of illicit recruitment cannot be pinned down, given the lack of police reports and the low profile of the guerrilla groups in this activity.” For its part, a study of the illicit recruitment of minors published in 2008 by the Maya Nasa Foundation in conjunction with the Vice President’s Office and the ICBF indicated that in Colombia, between 15 and 20% of the members of illegal armed groups are children. According to this study, the principal group responsible for recruiting minors is the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC, a Communist guerrilla group). The document also reveals that the principal tasks assigned to children in the rebel group are those of highest risk, like the manufacture and use of explosives and antipersonnel mines, as well as making up the first security ring around the group’s camps and in its armed encounters.last_img read more

Report targets ‘Top Ten Workforce Management Mistakes’—and solutions

first_img 18SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Chad Davis Chad Davis is Industry Sr Solutions Marketing Manger, F5 Networks, which is the leader in app security and multi-cloud management. He can be reached at [email protected] Web: https://www.f5.com Details Effective workforce management is at the center of every financial institution’s drive to optimize delivery of its products and services while operating as cost-efficiently as possible. Automated solutions can bring together the resources to achieve that balance, from navigating complex labor laws to recognizing top performers and putting their talents to work where they are most needed.A new white paper from Kronos, sets out the “Top Ten Workforce Management Mistakes in Financial Services” and offers recommendations to overcome those pitfalls in a way that improves organizational performance and business results.A key takeaway is that applying the best practices offered with this list can simultaneously streamline the many processes involved in deploying full- and part-time staff across multiple sites and engage employees in fulfilling routine, but critical, tasks. Supporting HR management on the moveAdvances in digital workforce management tools allow staff and managers to use the same kinds of technology they use in their personal lives—namely, their smartphones—to drive communication, efficiency, and convenience in the workplace. By investing in systems facilitating easy access, employers can equip staff with an easy way to punch in and out, submit timesheets, request leave or time off, and view schedules from their mobile devices. Mobile access to work schedules, HR information, and other notifications can also benefit financial professionals stationed at multiple branches or calling on existing and prospective customers in their homes and businesses. And managers can more efficiently manage scheduling and staff assignments when they are not tethered to the back office adjusting schedules, reviewing time sheets, and accessing reports on their desktop computers. Whether they are at the main office or traveling from branch to branch, managers can keep pace with updating schedules, reviewing reports, approving time-off requests, and monitoring performance metrics.Optimizing schedules—and sticking to themAutomated workforce management tools provide a wealth of data to improve branch traffic forecasting and scheduling so that the right people are in the right place at the right time, the white paper notes. Note that “optimized schedules” don’t translate to bare-bones staffing that leads to employee burnout and high turnover, but rather schedules that meets accountholder expectations for prompt service without increasing employee idle time when branch traffic regularly tapers off. Replacing manual and partially automated systems put in place over time with uniform digital solutions can ease employee and manager frustrations, increase productivity, improve morale, and enhance external service across channels and internal services between employees and among business units. Planned and unplanned paid time off adds to the complexity of developing and sticking to optimal scheduling. According to a SHRM survey the total direct costs of employee PTO are about 15.4 percent of payroll, which rises above 20 percent with the addition of indirect costs associated with lost productivity. Applying technology to manage PTO can help ensure that absence and leave policies are adhered to consistently and accurately and in a way that reduces the impact on labor costs and productivity. Employees value paid time off and job-protected leave and expect those benefits to be administered fairly and equitably. Schedules designed to support sales and service goals and reduce idle time only work when employees adhere to them. Automating time and attendance reporting can aid in monitoring compliance and quantifying the impact of new scheduling practices. By evaluating service and productivity metrics through the application of sophisticated analytics, managers can measure the impact of digital workforce systems and scheduling strategies and make changes where indicated.Ferreting out inefficiencies through integrationNothing perpetuates unnecessary costs and lost opportunities to improve service and productivity like a hodge-podge of manual and semi-automated HR systems put in place through the years and across various departments. A piecemeal approach to monitoring compliance with ever-changing labor regulations may pile on top of these inefficiencies—and put the financial institution at higher risk of costly violations. Integration can stem these operational, management, and regulatory weaknesses. “Unified workforce solutions provide a holistic view by integrating HR, time and attendance, scheduling, and more to create a single employee record that is updated in real time,” the white paper suggests. “This visibility allows managers to make more informed business decisions in the moment—from reallocating frontline employees to meet higher than expected demand to adjusting agent schedules in order to avoid unnecessary overtime in the contact center.”To maximize efficiency gains across the organization, financial institutions should consider workforce solutions that integrate with existing payroll, finance, or ERP systems to connect HR information to other business metrics. A data-driven approach to workforce management supports a proactive approach to both day-to-day operational decision making and long-term strategic planning. How can scheduling practices be fine-tuned to meet sales and service goals cost-effectively? How can onboarding and training be improved to enhance job performance and retention? How will the future labor force differ from today’s employees in terms of range of responsibilities and desirable skills and attributes? The business intelligence hidden in disconnected systems may hold the answers to those crucial questions.Putting your best staff forward“When exceptional service really counts, you want to put your strongest performers where they will have the most impact on sales and service,” the white paper emphasizes. “But if you are not tracking the right metrics, you may not know which employees you can count on to consistently drive business goals.”Performance analytics solutions track useful workforce metrics, such as transactions per staff hour worked or labor costs per transaction in a branch, to measure individual productivity and effectiveness. Managers can apply those insights by scheduling top performers with the right skills where and when they are needed.Recognizing high-performing staff for their contributions and showcasing their talents prominently may also aid in retention, which in terms increases customer loyalty and fuels growth by wielding a “customer-first” workforce as a key differentiator in a fiercely competitive business sector. Toward that end, another useful element of automated workforce systems is the ability to measure employee satisfaction and aid in identifying what workplace practices and policies deliver on their expectations for a good place to work. This strategy circles back around to employees’ affinity for HR systems powered by state-of-the-art technology.Managing a diverse financial services workforce is a complex undertaking that can cross the line into service and productivity setbacks when organizations persist in using multiple, siloed manual and semi-automated processes. As the white paper concludes, financial institutions that augment workforce management with advanced tools and integrated systems gain “real-time visibility and data-driven insights to effectively control labor costs, improve productivity, minimize compliance risk, and drive employee engagement.”last_img read more
