Okla. who was poking under the hood of his pickup in a field near Regent last week after a few showers stopped work for the afternoonSharing the painThe custom crew reduced its normal rate this year — cutting off $5 an acre — to share the financial downside of the drought Yields are definitely down in small grains if they weren’t already rolled up into feed for livestock instead of becoming flour-based products for humans"Well some days we just twiddle our thumbs" Walker said "I’ve been coming up here since the ’50s and this is the worst year we’ve ever had I’ve never seen it so bad — the whole way from Texas to here"He said a lot of guys baled up their crop and don’t want to hire anybody in a combine The yield out in fields still standing ranges from 5 bushels to as high as 30 bushels an acre even the high side still just half of what’s become typical since no-till farm practices took holdThe field where Walker Harvesting is staged in Regent is normally packed with crews and equipment This year it’s about as empty as a golf course in a lightning stormIt’s the same in Mott and Mott Mayor Troy Mosbrucker said campgrounds normally packed wall to wall are maybe 30 percent occupied this year"It affects everyone — the cafes the gas stations the grocery stores" he saidPheasants affectedHe’s worried the drought impact will carry over into the pheasant hunting season another traditional economic engine in the southwest region most yearsDrought conditions — now rated from moderate to exceptional across more than 99 percent of the state — affected habitat plant diversity and insect hatches Bird numbers could have suffered as a result according to Jeb Williams North Dakota Game and Fish Department’s wildlife chief Williams said the department’s brood survey will be done at the end of the month but it already appears that the traditional hot spot for pheasants will take yet another hit"It’s not surprising given that we have these extreme drought conditions right in the heart of pheasant country" Williams saidHunters should see to it that they have plenty of available data on their cellphones because before they hit the field they will need to do daily monitoring of the Rural Fire Danger Index The index will provide a county-by-county update of any special limitations related to off-road driving campfires or smoking outside a vehicleDangerous activities"The fire danger is not from the hunting but from associated activities Using the index gets to the activities during a situation when the fire danger is high or extreme and still allows hunting to go on" Williams saidThe limitations could be standard or customized depending on the individual county and it will be up to the hunter to know where he’s at and what applies he said The index is on the department’s and the state Emergency Services Department’s websitesTo say that the drought is on everyone’s mind in rural North Dakota is an understatementAbout 180 people packed into the Mott KC Hall for a special meeting early last week when Gov Doug Burgum Ag Commissioner Doug Goehring and a coterie of agency managers talked about the state and federal response to the situation ranging from emergency loan programs to grants for livestock water supply projectsBurgum said a livestock water supply program to help livestock producers has "burned through" about $750000 so far and is looking for more funds"We’ve done all we can by executive order for hay hauling For small grains that season is shot and we’re really focusing on the livestock people and getting through winter We take this really seriously" Burgum saidHe expressed concern about the fire danger with about 250 reported fires since July 1 and just 30 of those in the past week or twoHe said rural folks tend to be self-reliant but he urged everyone to keep their cell phone charged and handy and call 911 first before fighting any field fires"It’s OK to call for help" he saidNo end in sightBack in Bismarck at the National Weather Service meteorologists such as Todd Hamilton continue to update short- and long-range forecasts for rain The crystal ball is coming up dryThe end of a drought is measured when its impacts are relieved not just when rainfall catches back up and exceeds normal averages he saidHamilton said it appears an abnormally dry spring and summer — Bismarck is still in the range of 4 to 5 inches below average — will be followed by more of the same looking out over the next 90 days"There’s no real strong indicator going into the fall that there will be any above-average precipitation periods That’s to be expected; we’re now entering the dry time of year anyway Climatologically speaking the chance of enough rain to end the drought is not real good" he saidYes I lost blood I didn’t notice it initially It was the next person who saw me while dressing up that told me that my pants were stained with blood But I can’t say if it was the blood from my menstrual period because my menstrual period just ended or the blood was as a result of the virginity testNature abhors the old Emerson said In 2014 we can add: so do technology investors Because in the tech sector where innovation and growth are worshipped and rewarded with obscene valuations the esteemed companies that helped establish Silicon Valley and shape the Internet are not being allowed to age gracefully HP is breaking into two despite years of its CEO saying this wouldnt happen eBay’s spinning off PayPal after its CEO insisted this made no sense Both companies knuckled under shareholder pressure Now Yahoo is facing pressure to cash out of Alibaba and merge with AOL That follows Dell going private and IBM ditching its low-end servers There are even investor rumblings that Microsoft would be better broken into pieces Spinoffs breakups LBOs and shotgun marriages arent uncommon among aging troubled companies But the wave of events hitting companies once considered blue-chip tech firms is unprecedented Only a decade ago most of these companies were at the top of their games Even today many are so profitable they annually pay out billions if not tens of billions to shareholders through dividends and buybacks And while many of these companies have been undervalued by investors for years they are now being treated as if they are entering a period of advanced decay In sectors like utilities or retail slow growth is tolerated as long as a healthy profit margin is maintained But in tech profits arent enough without growth And there is plenty of growth among the younger generation of tech giants like Google Facebook and LinkedIn The gap between long-in-the-tooth tech giants and lithe growing companies is getting wider by the year While the latter are driven by innovation the former are pushed around by shareholder demands Tech investors have always been growth-oriented but now it’s becoming an obsession And why not As the network effects long promised in the early years of the Internet finally kick in growth at a successful startup can mushroom from seed round into large cap in a few years Airbnb Uber and WhatsApp were all founded about five years ago and today are valued at $10 billion $18 billion and $22 billion respectively Often the new generation of successful startups push to stay out of public markets as long as possible to avoid the public scrutiny quarterly earnings parades and exposure to shareholder activists that are plaguing the likes of HP eBay and Yahoo The world of secondary markets and venture investing have evolved to accommodate them allowing institutional investors who can afford substantial stakes to become investors while the startups remain private Yet theres a cautionary lesson here that startup founders should consider: The same forces that are accelerating tech growth curves are also accelerating the time to maturity Grow big enough and companies will need to draw on public markets for financing To meet quarterly targets they need to maintain billion-dollar businesses even when they stop growing That limits the ability to find new financially risky areas of innovation Soon enough dividend and buyback programs are rolled out to placate antsy investors That as we are seeing this year only placates them for so long No one is demanding a dividend from Google or calling for Facebook to spin off Instagram Both are delivering growth that often surpasses investor expectations and rewarded with rising stock prices Others like Netflix and Amazon are getting a pass by investing profits into future growth But as much as HP talks about say developing a mass-market 3D printer investors only look with disappointment at the slow-growth business of PCs and IT services There are a few companies founded before the dot-com boom notably Apple and Amazon that have so far been able to buck the trend But they may not be able to stay ahead of the curve for long The campaign to pressure Apple for more dividends has halted because Tim Cook keeps promising new product categories like the Apple Watch Amazon has lost nearly a quarter of its value in the last nine months amid concerns its spending is outpacing its promised growth For now Apple and Amazon are anomalies among companies more than 20 years old that are promising more growth in coming years Thats leaving their CEOs independent enough to pursue blue-sky innovations But age catches up to all companies And these days companies in the tech sector are growing old faster than ever Contact us at [email protected]: The Congress in Goa has come out in support of an RTI activist against whom the state government has ordered an inquiry File image of Manohar Parrikar PTI The Opposition party slammed the BJP-led government for ordering an inquiry into the assets of the activist Kashinath Shetye and said he should have been instead rewarded for exposing "misdeeds" of the ruling coalition On Friday Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar told the Assembly an ACB inquiry would be conducted against Shetye within eight days He said the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) will inquire if the activist who is also a government servant had amassed assets which are disproportionate to his known sources of income "I don’t agree the state government should initiate an inquiry against the whistleblower In fact he should be rewarded for exposing misdeeds of the government" Congress leader Girish Chodankar said at a press conference on Saturday He said Shetye a junior engineer in the electricity department has been playing a "positive" role and should not be harassed for exposing "illegalities" The RTI activist has filed several cases related to environment and other issues against government departments before the Goa bench of the Bombay High Court and the National Green Tribunal in Pune Parrikar told the House Shetye had filed 195 cases against the government in the last five years The chief minister said a separate probe will be instituted to find out how Shetye obtained a gun licence amid a church sex abuse scandal that has sent shockwaves through the conservative Catholic nation.
