Grown Rogue Wins Highest THC % and Highest Terpenes % at Grow Classic

We are incredibly proud of our cultivation team for the best in class flower that they consistently produce.”

— Obie Strickler

MEDFORD, OR, USA, December 7, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Grown Rogue took home top honors from the Grow Classic held in Eugene, OR last weekend. The company was one of 31 elite growers from across the state of Oregon who entered the three-category competition, in which Grown Rogue took first place for Highest THC %, first place for Highest Terpenes % and third place in Growers Choice.

"Grown Rogue is honored to accept these awards from among the best growers in the state,” said Grown Rogue Co-Founder and CEO, Obie Strickler. “We are incredibly proud of our cultivation team for the best in class flower that they consistently produce. It is very gratifying to have this competition validate the quality we have strived so hard to achieve."

Grown Rogue’s Head Cultivator, Ken Cobb, said, “The Grow Classic is a true grower’s event that brings together an amazing group of cultivators. There was a lot of camaraderie in the room, and we left feeling blessed and appreciative to be among such a great group of people. We want to thank Grow Magazine; this was definitely one of the cooler events we’ve been to and we look forward to participating again next year.”

Grow Classic is an invitation-only competition hosted by Grow Magazine each November and bills itself as The Quintessential Cannabis Horticulture Competition. Thirty-one growers were provided with four clones from the same cultivar from the same mother plant, and invited to grow the best plants possible. For the Growers Choice award, only the participating growers themselves are the judges with blind labeled products– so there are no paid or potentially biased judges. The event awarded $15,000 in cash and over $5,000 in prizes to the winners.

Grown Rogue produces top quality flower, innovative nitrogen-sealed pre-rolls and extracts including oils, shatter, sugar and wax all classified according to experiences reflected in the name ROGUE – Relax, Optimize, Groove, Uplift and Energize.

My family owned a pharmacy in the area when I was growing up and I came to learn about Wyman Heights while delivering prescriptions. I fell in love with the picturesque views of the Missouri River”

— Dr. Matthew Bogard, doctor in Iowa and Nebraska

OMAHA, NEBRASKA, UNITED STATES, December 7, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Matthew Bogard is excited to represent the Wyman Heights Neighborhood Association as a member of the Association leadership along with four other dedicated members of the community.

Wyman Heights is a neighborhood with a proud history that dates to 1902 when local real estate investor Henry Wyman began acquiring property on a large hill north of Florence. He planned to develop an elite neighborhood which in 1925 he re-platted as Wyman Heights.

Lots began to sell in the late 1920’s with sales stymied by the Great Depression. Interest in the neighborhood increased in the years leading up to and after WWII as doctors, lawyers, business owners and socialites discovered the natural beauty of the area. Because of this rich history, Wyman Heights enjoys an eclectic mix of housing styles built over a nearly 40-year span. Many prominent newsmakers in Omaha’s history called Wyman Heights home, including Peter Kiewit (founder of Kiewit construction), Gene Leahy (longtime Omaha Mayor and catalyst of downtown redevelopment), Cecil Wittson, M.D. (prominent early psychiatrics and namesake of Wittson Hall at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, the Reeds Family (founder of Reed’s Ice Cream), David Hayden (Hayden House Restaurants), and Dick Collins, M.D. (The Cooking Cardiologist).

The Wyman Heights Neighborhood Association was formed in the 1960’s to support the growth, development, and preservation of this unique neighborhood. It is in that capacity we are contacting you now.

“My family owned a pharmacy in the area when I was growing up and I came to learn about Wyman Heights while delivering prescriptions, says Matthew Bogard, M.D. “I fell in love with the picturesque views of the Missouri River and the Loess Hills. Neighbors are all so friendly and supportive of each other and our neighborhood in general. I love the landscaping we maintain at the entrance and bus stop as well as the holiday decorations we place every winter.”

CleanBC climate plan boosts British Columbia’s signal for renewable fuel use and production

Advanced Biofuels Canada lauds the Government of British Columbia for its new climate plan, with critical role for low-carbon renewable fuels

Today’s announcement builds on a decade of smart, hard work by provincial staff and political leaders. An increased LCFS is a vote of confidence in the capacity of biofuels to deliver.””

— Ian Thomson

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, December 6, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Government of British Columbia released on December 5th its CleanBC climate plan, which charts a path to 19 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions reductions by 2030—an ambitious yet achievable set of measures that put low-carbon biofuels at the forefront of the Province’s climate efforts. It also puts BC firmly in a leadership role on the national stage.

Highlights from the CleanBC plan include:
• Strengthening the low carbon fuel standard to a 20% reduction in fuel carbon intensity by 2030
• Supporting ramp up of new renewable fuel production to 650 million litres by 2030
• Zero-Emission Vehicles to make up 10% of new light duty vehicle sales in 2025, 30% in 2030, and 100% in 2040
• 15% minimum renewable content in industrial natural gas consumption, and cleaner industrial operations through electrification, CO2 storage, and direct air capture
• Improved energy efficiency in buildings

The 19 million tonnes of reductions in the CleanBC plan represent approximately 75% of the Province’s overall emissions reduction goal in 2030. The remaining 25% of the reduction measures will be determined over the next 18 to 24 months and will include new clean energy options, waste management, and reducing emissions in forestry, land use and agriculture. The CleanBC plan suggests that by 2030, over 40% of diesel and 10% of gasoline could come from biofuels.

Advanced Biofuels Canada released a statement today by President Ian Thomson. “CleanBC is sending an excellent signal at an opportune time. Today’s announcement builds on a decade of smart, hard work by provincial staff and political leaders. The convergence in BC of sustainable feedstocks and robust technologies can spur new production of low-carbon biofuels and create sustainable jobs across the province, with existing biofuel options continuing to provide a foundation for new fuels. BC’s renewable and low carbon fuel regulation has already reduced emissions by 6.37 million tonnes between 2010 and 2016. An increased LCFS is a vote of confidence in the capacity of biofuels to deliver.”

Advanced Biofuels Canada/ Biocarburants avancés Canada is the national voice for producers, distributors, and technology developers of advanced biofuels. Our members are the global leaders in commercial biofuel production and technology development, with rapidly expanding investments in British Columbia to meet new low carbon fuel demand. Since 2005, ABFC has provided provincial and federal leadership on effective biofuels policies that expand clean energy options, achieve measurable climate action results, and stimulate new investments and clean growth.

2019 – The Year of Green Action – Eagle HotShot’s LTL Shipping Supports Greener Freight Shipments For All

Transporting small structures

Containers, Structures, LTL transportation

Transporting vehicles

The new year is fast approaching, companies and individuals are busy budgeting for the new year, looking for ways to save money and get things done efficiently.

TULSA, OKLAHOMA, UNITED STATES, December 5, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — With the new year fast approaching, companies and individuals alike are busy budgeting for the year ahead, looking for ways to save money and get things done more efficiently, Additionally, there has been a growing awareness for all matters that are related to the environment, sustainability, and for corporations to focus on becoming as ‘green’ as possible.

Saving Money, Saving Hassle, and Doing Your Share for the Environment!

LTL Shipping is extremely effective in helping to reduce the number of trucks needed to make deliveries. Less Than Load Freight will transport products that do not take up the full capacity of a truck. This means that more individual shipments can be carried on a single truck.

Eagle HotShot now uses intelligent scheduling tools that optimize all shipments; this technology now enables the company to move more goods to more customers in a highly effective manner. It also enables a highly flexible operation, that is cost-effective and better for the environment.

Following a recent expansion into LTL Shipping from Eagle HotShot, they are now transporting as far as both coasts to and from the Midwest. This offers immense capabilities to businesses and domestic clients alike. It also helps with the cost of shipping with the added reassurance of dealing with a trusted and highly professional trucking company that is used and rated by hundreds of existing clients.

LTL Shipping Explained

With traditional shipping, a load would be placed onto a truck and delivered. Even if the load only took up part of the truck, the client would be charged in full for the total cost of the truck, and despite their being room for more, this space would be wasted.

LTL Freight is where multiple loads are combined in order to create what is referred to as a multi-stop truckload. The costs to send goods via LTL shipping are lower than traditional shipping because prices are dependent of the space being used, along with the distance traveled, and the individual classifications of the items in transit.

With LTL, you can get expedited, standard, or guaranteed shipping options; you can also get other special shipping services such as internal pick-up and delivery, lift gate delivery or pick-up, reclassification or reweighing.
Clients get the same range of freight shipping options, at a lower cost, using a method of shipping that has a significantly lower environmental impact.

LTL Freight Shipping is The Greenest Shipping Option for Companies

Eagle HotShot has been able to demonstrate a huge range of benefits to clients considering LTL or other forms of shipping. Here are just a few:

Environmentally Friendly – Fewer trucks on the road and optimized delivery and pick-up schedules result in a reduced footprint on the environment.

Lower Cost Freight Services – Because shipments are charged individually based on the portion of space they use, you pay less than the full cost of a truckload.

Suited for Business and Domestic Shipping – Both types of customers benefit from LTL. For smaller shipments that do not need an entire truck, clients get a highly professional service and dependable shipping service.

About Us: EagleHotShot is an Oklahoma-based trucking company that provides a reliable, honest, and cost-effective range of HotShot Trucking services to commercial and domestic customers. Focusing foremost on the needs of the customer, they are a trusted and dependable name in the HotShot Trucking sector.

CHARITON, IOWA, UNITED STATES, December 4, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Doctor Matthew Bogard, Board Certified in Family Medicine and Board Eligible in Emergency Medicine, recently completed advanced training presented by the Iowa Bureau of Emergency and Trauma Services with an eye toward providing additional services to EMS agencies in rural locations.

The single day course reviewed Iowa Code governing Emergency Medical Services, types of agencies and classifications of responders, additional resources necessary for Critical Care Transport Services, and the importance of an EMS Contingency Plan. Training was also provided regarding the Iowa EMS provider scope of practice.

According to Dr. Bogard, “Emergency Medicine doctors interact with first responders, Emergency Medical Technicians, and Paramedics on a daily basis. We receive patients they have evaluated and cared for, often providing lifesaving treatments. In many cases, we rely on EMS services to not only transport patients to the Emergency Room but also transfer them elsewhere, sometimes over great distances. It is important to have a strong and supportive working relationship with the Emergency Medical Services departments in the areas you work.”

Seeds for Impact West Africa Programme Launch to Promote Sustainable Agriculture

Stakeholders for Seeds For Impact Programme

Some Seed Growers At the Event

The initiative is a US $60 million programme that seeks to address the funding gap faced by seed companies scaling their seed production for staple crops.

The African seed market has great potential for growth given that improved seed is currently available for less than 10% of total arable acreage in sub-Saharan Africa,”

— Lord Paul Boateng, Board Chair, The AECF.

EAST LEGON, ACCRA, GHANA, December 4, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The AECF recently launched the Seeds for Impact West Africa Programme on 27th November 2018, at a cocktail reception at Labadi Beach Hotel, in Accra, Ghana. The launch was attended by dignitaries, government officials, development partners and seed companies from across Africa. The initiative is a US $60 million programme that seeks to address the funding gap faced by seed companies scaling their seed production for staple crops.

“It all starts with the seed. We are here because we care about smallholder farmers and Africa. We can make a difference to agricultural productivity in Africa if we ensure that smallholder farmers have access to the best available seeds i.e. improved seeds. The African seed market has great potential for growth given that improved seed is currently available for less than 10% of total arable acreage in sub-Saharan Africa,” said Lord Paul Boateng, Board Chair, The AECF.

Crop yields for the smallholder farmers who dominate African agriculture are the lowest in the world, due in part to limited access to quality inputs and improved seed varieties suitable for the different climatic conditions, soils and production systems across the continent. Improved seeds underpin agricultural transformation and improvements in productivity needed to feed the continent.

“Agriculture is the backbone of Ghana’s economy and about 80% of total agricultural production is attributed to smallholder farmers. We need to look after the smallholder farmers who have put food on our tables for years,” Dr. John Manful, Advisor to Ghana’s Minister of Food and Agriculture.

Current agricultural practices are undermining many African governments goals for food security and productivity of low-cost nutritious food in both rural and urban markets. The Seeds for Impact programme is currently running a competition with initial funding from Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa and Syngenta Foundation for Sustainable Agriculture to start addressing this problem.

“The competition seeks to transfer in-demand, high-yielding and climate-smart seed, planting material technologies and agricultural innovation to smallholder farmers. This we believe will substantially increase the incomes of thousands of smallholder farmers in Africa and West Africa in particular,” said Daniel Ohonde, CEO, The AECF.

The Seeds for Impact competition was launched on 30th October 2018 and closes on 11th December 2018, targeting seed companies in twelve countries namely Nigeria, Ghana, Mali, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, Malawi and Mozambique. Successful companies will be provided with financial and technical assistance ranging between US $250,000 and US $1.5 million. For more information on how to apply for the funding visit https://aecf.submittable.com/submit .

About AECF
The AECF is a development institution which supports businesses to innovate, create jobs, leverage investments and markets in an effort to create resilience and sustainable incomes in rural and marginalized communities in Africa. Launched in 2008, the AECF has mobilized over US $356 million to date, leveraging more than US $658 million in matching capital and improving the lives of more than 16 million people in 2017 alone through jobs and increased household incomes. AECF has so far supported 268 companies in 26 countries in sub-Saharan Africa across 40 value chains in our focal sectors of agribusiness and renewable energy.

Experienced emergency medicine doctor one of very few physicians to complete this important scenario-based lifesaving class

Office of Matthew Bogard, MD (N/A:N/A)

This is an important class for any emergency medicine doctor practicing in rural areas, it was a great review of the mechanics of what happens combined with the hands-on scenario”

— Dr. Matthew Bogard, Emergency Physician

CHARITON, IOWA, UNITED STATES, December 3, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Doctor Matthew Bogard, Board Certified in Family Medicine and Board Eligible in Emergency Medicine, recently completed an in-depth hands-on course to learn the intricacies of rescuing victims of grain bin entrapment. This often happens when a farmer enters the grain bin while the unload auger is running – typically to address a plugged auger – and becomes stuck in the moving grain.

The class taught the importance of safety tie-off anchor points, how to safely walk on stored grain, and appropriate ways to rescue entrapped victims. If the person is visible inside the top of the grain bin, a cofferdam is built around the victim after first securing them with rope to prevent further movement. Grain is then removed from within the cylinder surrounding the victim until they are able to walk out. When a victim becomes completely submerged, large V-shaped cuts are created symmetrically around the bin and grain is removed as fast as safely possible to reach the victim.

“This is an important class for any emergency medicine doctor practicing in rural areas,” says Dr. Bogard. “It was a great review of the mechanics of what happens combined with the hands-on scenario where I strapped into a harness and helped rescue a fellow classmate from a specially-constructed grain bin simulator.”
