Dust Bowl 2.0? Rising Great Plains dust levels stir concerns

A dust storm in the Texas panhandle. Fueled by drought and agriculture, dust levels in parts of the Great Plains have doubled in 20 years, researchers say.

Earlier this month, a storm front swept across the Great Plains of the United States, plowing up a wall of dust that could be seen from space, stretching from eastern Colorado into Nebraska and Kansas. It was a scene straight from the Dust Bowl of the 1930s, when farmers regularly saw soil stripped from their fields and whipped up into choking blizzards of dust.

Better get used to it. According to a new study, dust storms on the Great Plains have become more common and more intense in the past 20 years, because of more frequent droughts in the region and an expansion of croplands. “Our results suggest a tipping point is approaching, where the conditions of the 1930s could return,” says Gannet Haller, an atmospheric scientist at the University of Utah who led the study.

The dust storms not only threaten to remove soil nutrients and decrease agricultural productivity, but also present a health hazard, says Andy Lambert, a co-author on the study and a meteorologist …

Jill Grozalsky’s college major in general communications gave her a solid foundation from which to explore a variety of career options. In her work for a government contractor, she did a fair amount of writing and editorial work for organizations such as the National Institute of Health and the National Institute of Justice. It was during that period that she got her introduction into the digital space, focusing on video content and establishing digital programs and strategies.
“From there, I went to the PR world where I focused on crisis communications, as well as social media and digital strategies to help increase engagement and conversations for various brands,” Grozalsky said. When it came time to move back to her hometown of Boston, she began working for a Sitecore implementation partner and discovered her passion.
“[That] is when I started to enter the world of digital customer experience — working for a Sitecore implementation partner and find[ing] my passion for personalization strategies and how to help brands deliver exceptional customer experiences,” she said.

Election Day is 3 November, but U.S. voters have already started to mail in or drop off their ballots. In addition to selecting candidates for local, state, and federal positions, voters in many states will be weighing in on more than 100 initiatives and referenda.

The measures often deal with mundane financial matters. But voters will also get to vote on a number of hot-button issues, including marijuana legalization, abortion, and health care.

There are also a few science-related initiatives that the research community is watching. Here are examples from four states: California, Colorado, Oregon, and Nevada.

Renewing stem cell research funding in California

In 2004, Californians voted in favor of Proposition 71, which established the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) to conduct work with human embryonic stem cells, and authorized the state to sell $3 billion in bonds to fund the institute. Now, CIRM’s bond funding has nearly expired, and Proposition 14 aims to renew the flow. It asks voters to approve issuing an additional $5.5 billion in bonds. The proposition is led …

Isis Nyong’o Madison, CEO Bliss Group.

The merger between MumsVillage, a Kenyan company, and BabyBliss Nigeria is a demonstration of how e-commerce and Femtech will spread in Africa.

Realising their shared values around serving expectant and nursing mothers, both companies came together as Bliss Group to deepen their penetration in two of Africa’s biggest tech-powered economies. 

MumsVillage and BabyBliss were each under three years old as retail outlets before the merger. By combining capacities, each gains extra years of expertise to become stronger companies in each market.

Each rose to prominence through a similar course; first by creating relevant content, then building a community across multiple channels, and taking on the responsibility of delivering trusted goods to members of the community through those channels.

Bliss Group is positioning to be a trusted partner for African mothers and their infants. But the subsidiary companies have jumped various hoops, especially of perception bias, to come to life.

Isis Nyong’o Madison founded MumsVillage after years of experience at Google, Viacom and InMobi. 

Besides the goal of building a competitive product for women, she was deliberate about designing a company with a female orientation. Her teams would not be female-only but will …

Massive Opportunity In ‘Digital Transformation’ – Jon Markman Joins Alpha Trader (DJI)

massive opportunity in ‘digital transformation’ – jon markman joins alpha trader (dji)

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

This week’s Alpha Trader podcast features hosts Aaron Task and Stephen Alpher talking (mostly) tech with Jon Markman, founder and president of Markman Capital Insight. Before getting into individual stock picks, Markman first looks at the big picture: Going back about 80 years, whenever the Fed steps in to put the brakes on a bear market, one should expect the averages to go up five times over the following ten years. The Fed helped end the bear market, says Markman, on March 23 this year. Applying that 5x multiple to what the Dow (DJI) and the Nasdaq (COMP) were that day leads to 91,000 on the Dow and almost 34,000 on the Nasdaq in roughly 10 years. Before considering that extreme, consider that the S&P 500 (SP500) bottomed in 2009 at 666. Markman’s target then for that index was 3,330, which was hit late in 2019. This, of course, doesn’t mean that there will be any number of scares and sizable corrections along the way. These should be thought of as buying opportunities, particularly for those companies leading and benefitting from the “digital transformation,” which Markman defines as the use of data and software to build new business models. A great example of this is Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), which, …
