Western United Dairymen’s request for emergency price relief denied

first_imgWestern United Dairymen’s petition for emergency price relief and changes to 4b pricing formula was denied by the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA).The CDFA gave the following reasons for its denial:advertisementadvertisement Temporary Increase on All Classes of Milk. As the secretary stated in her letter to industry dated July 20, 2012, she is committed to finding long-term solutions to the problems facing our dairy families. You acknowledge yourself in the petition, “a fifty cent temporary increase will not make dairy margins positive again.” Current fluctuating feed costs and milk prices combined with the short period of time since our last decision makes it premature to convene a hearing at this time.Dry Whey Credit. The Food and Agricultural Code does not provide for the implementation of the dry whey credit you have proposed. Replacing of Whey Factor Sliding Scale. This issue was considered during the recent milk price hearing and rejected. In the very brief period between the issuance of CDFA’s previous decision and your petition, circumstances have not altered to the extent that requires reconsideration.

Linear Technology Introduces +36dBm IIP3 Downconverting Mixer with Unprecedented 2.4dB Conversion Gain

first_imgLinear Technology announced the LTC5551, that offers very high linearity of +36dBm IIP3, (input third-order intercept), and low 9.7dB noise figure comparable to the highest IIP3 passive mixers available. Unlike passive mixers which typically have 7dB to 9dB of conversion loss, the LTC5551 boasts 2.4dB of conversion gain, substantially improving receiver dynamic range. The device also has broad RF frequency range capability, operating from 300MHz to 3.5GHz. Additionally, passive mixers require high LO (local oscillator) drive to reach their claimed IIP3, hence external circuitry and costs are minimized. And with the elimination of a high power LO signal in the users’ receiver, it substantially reduces a potential source of undesirable radiation, thus simplifying filtering and RF shielding requirements. The LTC5551 ensures robust radio performance with its high 1dB compression point of +18dBm. Both the RF and LO inputs have integrated balun transformers, further reducing cost and external components while simplifying the design task. The mixer is powered from a single 3.3V supply with current consumption of 204mA, delivering its high performance with exceptionally low power. If needed, the mixer also has a low power mode controlled via the ISEL pin. In this mode, current consumption drops by 30% to 142mA, trading off the IIP3 slightly to +29.3dBm. The superior performance of this mixer is ideally suited for a wide range of mission-critical, high performance applications that are exposed to strong interference sources such as multi-carrier GSM, 4G LTE and LTE-Advanced multimode basestations, point-to-point backhauls, military communications, wireless repeaters, public safety radios, VHF/UHF/white-space broadcast receivers, radar and avionics. The mixer can be conveniently shut down with an enable control pin. When disabled, the IC draws a maximum of 100µA standby current. The device turns on and off in 500ns, suitable for burst-mode receivers. The LTC5551 is specified for operation from -40°C to 105°C case temperature. The mixer’s minimum external circuits and its 16-lead, 4mm x 4mm QFN package provide a highly compact solution footprint. The LTC5551 is priced starting at $7.25 each in 1,000-piece quantities.last_img read more

Cummins ready after Ashes call-up

first_img Ashes, Pat Cummins Sydney – Australian quick Pat Cummins has not played a first-class match for two years but is confident his body will hold up to the rigors of test cricket should he get the call during the Ashes series against England.The 22-year-old right-armer was called into the Australia squad on Saturday when Ryan Harris announced his retirement after scans ruled him out of the series, which starts in Cardiff on Wednesday. KEYWORDS IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5center_img Cummins, who had been in Queensland since the World Cup preparing for an Australia ‘A’ tour to India, said he felt fighting fit even if he was aware his chances of getting a game were slim.“Really fortunate to get the call now. Not the nicest circumstances with ‘Ryno’ going down but just a wonderful opportunity for myself,” he told reporters in Brisbane before his departure for England.“I’m certainly hopeful but I know I haven’t played a first-class game for a year or two so the jump up for a test series was always going to be a big call.“My body feels really strong and the jump up shouldn’t be too much. There’s a tour match after the second test so I’d love to get an opportunity in that and get used to bowling hopefully two or three days in a row.” GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMESlast_img read more

T20 W’Cup at ‘high risk’ of being postponed

first_imgMELBOURNE, Australia (AP):Cricket Australia is bracing for the “very high risk” of the men’s Twenty20 (T20) World Cup being postponed and the resulting financial hit during the coronavirus pandemic.Australia is scheduled to host the tournament in October and November, but with global travel restrictions in place, it’s very doubtful that the event will go ahead. And if it does, it’s unlikely that crowds will be allowed in stadiums because of social-distancing requirements.“We have been hopeful all along that it could be staged in October-November, but you would have to say there’s a very high risk about the prospect of that happening,” Cricket Australia chief executive Kevin Roberts said yesterday.Roberts is more confident about a four-Test series against India going ahead, starting at the Gabba in Brisbane on December 3. But while that would deliver much-needed broadcast revenue, it would also come at a cost of millions for extra “biosecurity measures that we need to put in place to deliver the season”.Cricket Australia released a draft schedule for the southern summer that involves back-to-back T20 series against the West Indies and India in October; a Test match against Afghanistan at Perth from November 21-25; and four Tests against India in Brisbane (December 3-7), Adelaide (December 11-15), Melbourne (December 26-30), and Sydney (January 3-7). International RANKINGS The Australians regained the top spot from India in the last International Cricket Council rankings released before sport was shuttered globally in the pandemic.India are scheduled to stay for a three-game One-Day International series on January 12, 15, and 17 before the Australians take on New Zealand in three One-Day games and a T20 from January 26 to February 2.The schedule depends on state borders being open and the provision for visiting foreign teams to fulfil whatever isolation or quarantine requirements are in place at the time.“It may be that circumstances dictate that when the time comes, maybe we can only use one or two venues. We really don’t know any of that yet,” Roberts said. “There’s endless scenarios and possibilities, [but] we’re very optimistic that we will be able to stage the Indian men’s tour and the other inbound tours for the season.”last_img read more

Everton make £32m offer and ‘do not intend to stop there’…

first_imgThe French newspaper said the Toffees have formulated a €30m offer, but it was made clear that amount wouldn’t be enough, with Watford looking more at something like €40m as a starting point if they’re even going to enter into negotiations.Doucoure would be the replacement for Idrissa Gana Gueye, according to L’Equipe, yet there was no mention of Jean-Philippe Gbamin, who was confirmed as an arrival on Friday evening.Now RMC have generally backed the claims up, although the figures are slightly different. They say Everton put forward an offer ‘a few days’ ago of around £32m, which was unsuccessful.However, Everton, who are described as being ‘very interested’, ‘do not intend to stop there’ and will submit a higher offer.It’s unlikely to be Marco Silva’s club or Everton pushing these claims, and perhaps it’s no coincidence they’re coming from France.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is AddictiveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoMisterStocksThese Hilarious Photos Were Captured On The SubwayMisterStocksUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoCNN with DBS BankWhat Banks Did To Help Corporations Mitigate Future CrisesCNN with DBS BankUndoLoans | Search AdsNeed a loan?

Petrichev: The team needs to be renewed – BG Football –…

first_imgThe executive director of Ludogorets Angel Petrichev shared the atmosphere in the team before the match of the second preliminary round of the Champions League with Midtjylland. As it is known, the two giants will compete on Wednesday night at 20:30 Bulgarian time in Razgrad.“It is difficult for me to say whether we are ready to face the champion of Denmark. I hope that we will show our best at our stadium. Every loss is a cause for concern. We have left several times with defeat. But our fans they have to be patient, “he said.“We are carrying out a major reform in the club. The team needs to be renewed. Some of the boys are no longer in the team, others are at an age that does not allow them to give their best. The change of generations hides its risks. But we will not change the goals And so the task becomes quite difficult, “Petrichev continued.“Our team has all the knowledge and skills. We are trying to take it one step further. We will see. The balance between investment and quality is the biggest challenge. We have reduced the budget, which should be reflected,” the director of the Bulgarian champion revealed to national television. .
