Road to second seed in AFC playoffs just got easier for Bills https://cacaovm.org/road-to-second-seed-in-afc-playoffs-just-got-easier-for-bills/ Wed, 05 Jan 2022 18:04:02 +0000 https://cacaovm.org/road-to-second-seed-in-afc-playoffs-just-got-easier-for-bills/

It should be a fun end to the 2021 regular season this Sunday across the NFL, as the Buffalo Bills host the New York Jets at Highmark Stadium for a 4:25 p.m. kickoff.

The Bills are currently the 4th seed in the AFC playoff picture, with a playoff spot notched up. The Bills can win the AFC East with a victory over the Jets on Sunday, or a loss for the New England Patriots to the Miami Dolphins.

Bills are more likely to be seed 3 or 4, but they still have a shot at seed 2 and a thin hit to drop for seed 7.

First, how do Bills fall into seed 7? It begins with a loss to the Jets on Sunday, with a victory for the Patriots, a victory for the Colts and a victory for the Chargers. There’s only a five percent chance of that happening, depending on playoff status.

But seed 2 has a slightly higher chance at 11%.

The Bills need to beat the Jets and they needed losses from the Chiefs and Bengals. Kansas City plays the Denver Broncos and Cincinnati plays the Cleveland Browns. The Broncos and Browns were both eliminated from the playoffs.

The losing Bengals have become much more likely, however. Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow will not play, along with other Bengals starters, in favor of the rest.

Star running back Joe Mixon will also not be playing, having been placed on the COVID-19 roster on Wednesday.

It looks like the Bengals don’t go higher than a 4 seed. This means the Bills have a better chance of progressing. However, it’s probably worth getting Seed 2 instead of Seed 3, as that would likely be the difference between playing a team like the Raiders or Chargers, or a team like the Colts, who destroyed you Bills. in November 41. -15.

If the Bills finish seed 3, the Colts or Patriots will most certainly be the match. If they’re the 2 seeds, they’ll guarantee themselves at least two home playoff games, assuming they can win the Wild Card weekend.

Let’s see how it all goes.

Iconic (and sometimes silly) toys, technologies and electronics have been usurped since their official entry, either through technological advancements or through breakthroughs in common sense. See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories – and those that were there and gone so quickly you missed them completely.

Stacker took the guesswork out of 50 random events to determine the likelihood of them actually occurring. They drew their information from government statistics, scientific articles and other primary documents.

WATCH: 50 Famous Memes & What They Mean

With the endless number of memes scattered across the internet, it’s hard to keep up. Just when you’ve grasped the meaning of a hilarious meme, it’s already become old news and replaced with something so enigmatic. Online forums like Tumblr, Twitter, 4chan, and Reddit are responsible for the majority of mem infections, and with constant posting and sharing, finding the source of an original meme is easier said than done. Stacker tracked through internet resources, pop culture publications and databases like Know your meme to find 50 different memes and what they mean. While the almost self-reproducing nature of these vague symbols can become overwhelming, memes in their essence can bring people closer together, as long as they have access to the internet.

The Maricopa Native Seed Library features free food plant seeds and a story https://cacaovm.org/the-maricopa-native-seed-library-features-free-food-plant-seeds-and-a-story/ Wed, 22 Dec 2021 19:18:00 +0000 https://cacaovm.org/the-maricopa-native-seed-library-features-free-food-plant-seeds-and-a-story/ Initially, the sabbatical project of Danielle Carlock, a faculty member at Scottsdale Community College, was aimed at tackling student food insecurity.

Initially, the sabbatical project of Danielle Carlock, a faculty member at Scottsdale Community College, was aimed at tackling student food insecurity. This was to be done through a farmers market style event at CSC, where Carlock would distribute free vegetables and edible plants from the campus vegetable garden.

But when SCC shut down due to COVID in the spring, it had to abandon that plan. The students were not on campus. She therefore expanded the other part of the project: the free library of indigenous Maricopa seeds. Now Carlock is tackling food insecurity for the whole valley… sort of.

“My main focus in the seed library is to support pollinators,” says Carlock, dressed in outdoor gear, speaking near a small, fenced-in plant on the Red Mountain campus of Mesa Community College. “If we don’t support pollinators by conserving the plants they use, we won’t have anything to eat.

Danielle Carlock reports new factories on the Red Mountain campus of Mesa Community College.

Carlock’s project focuses on native plants – ecologically specific even to Maricopa County – and seeds that are not readily available in nurseries in the valley. She collected seeds in the Tonto National Forest (under license), the SCC Garden, some donations and her own backyard.

These native seeds are free to students and faculty at Maricopa Community Colleges, as well as to the public, through the library she founded. They come in packs of 20-25 (and no, you don’t have to return them after three weeks) in a few places.

The Gateway Community College Seed Library has been open since August, but is only accessible to students and GWCC staff. Carlock has also been present at farmers’ markets like Old Town Scottsdale, Carefree, Chandler and Sun City to distribute packages. And, along with a few volunteers, Carlock sent packages for $ 1 just to cover the postage.

So far, food plants like kale, lettuce, and bean varieties have been quite popular at GWCC (the penstemon Firecracker being by far the most popular desert landscaping plant). Other food seeds include Sonoran winter wheat, salt river pima pea, and desert chia. Participants are also picked up after pickup; Carlock says there is basic information about the plant on the packages, including whether it is easy, medium, or difficult to germinate, and a small URL redirecting gardeners to the plant’s profile page on the website. from the seed library.

In early December, anyone can take up to three packs from Phoenix College’s Fannin Library and Mesa Community College’s Red Mountain Library. MCC Red Mountain also offers curbside pickup. There is also a recently established ethnobotanical garden in Red Mountain with a grant from the Arizona Lottery Gives Back awarded through the Maricopa Community Colleges Foundation.

Ethnobotany?

“It means pretty much any human use of a plant,” says Carlock. “Almost all of the plants found in the Sonoran Desert have been used by various groups of people and are still used for all of these purposes. ”

Carlock pulls out a one-leaf guide to the small, fenced plants found on the tiny Red Mountain campus. The companion oat gamma has dietary and fiber uses in the Apaches, Kiowas, and Tewa. Goji, a shrub producing small tart berries, was the food of the Yuma, Akimel O’odham, Tohono O’odham, and Piipaash (as well as hikers). The Blazing Star of Adonis (which Carlock really must have hunted down) has food, medicinal, and ceremonial uses with the Keres and Dine (Navajo) people.

While walking through the small wild habitat in the middle of the campus, Carlock points out the host plants for future seeds. MCC’s Red Mountain Campus has now become a sort of exhibition hall for the Seed Library. She points out the goji, a few others and the mustard plants which she is really delighted with.

“These are one of the few perennial mustards in the Sonoran Desert and they tolerate butterflies, so I’m a little crazy about these as they’re not that common in the desert.” I’ve only seen them a few times, ”she says. “I want everyone to have this mustard in their garden; this is my dream.”

It’s clear that Carlock thinks a lot about other people’s yards, patios and balconies. There is a good reason for this: Compared to the natural environment, residential areas are more sheltered from forest fires and have reliable water sources.

“As we figure out how we’re really going to tackle climate change, the more of these plants we have in our landscapes, it’s going to be a plan to keep them and conserve them in the meantime,” she says. “Maybe one day that could be a source of seeds to bring back to the burnt areas.”

Personally, Carlock has planted over 150 species of plants over the past 10 years in her home, attracting birds, bees and more. She says it brings her joy, especially during the pandemic. “It’s about distributing seeds, it’s about education, but it’s also about inspiring people to bring wildlife to their own landscapes,” she says. “Even five or ten plants added over time makes a huge difference. ”

Carlock is very excited about these mustard plants.

Lauren Cusimano

The MCC Red Mountain plants are in their infancy, they were just planted in October. But Carlock still has more to do as they grow older and before her sabbatical ends in August 2021 (when she returns to CSC as a full-time librarian). In January or February, she wants to organize workshops on growing food plants in pots, as she assumes that many students are in apartments. She may wish to hire students. And further into the future, she wants to gift the five to 10 most valuable plants for wildlife as plants, not just seeds, in the SCC Big Sale of Plants.

But aside from all that and the dream of a mustard factory in every yard, Carlock still has even bigger plans. She wishes to distribute native seeds and plants along a corridor, building a route for pollinators from the Superstition Mountains in the East Valley to the White Tank Mountains in the West Valley, crossing the entire Phoenix area.

“Imagine connecting each college, then parks, and filling it with family landscapes,” she says. “It’s kind of a dream I have.”

Is it just me, or is time just meaningless? There were definable seasons, but now they all seem to work together, starting and ending (if applicable) not on specific dates as much as market share. It’s bad enough when the cable channels put on “Christmas in July” and Santa Claus starts throwing soft drinks before Halloween, but now I get my spring seed catalogs before winter becomes official!

One is from Johnny’s Seeds, and I have never ordered from them, although I may have contacted them last year while looking for witloof chicory. They sent out a terrific catalog but they’re in Maine and have a $ 10 delivery charge and when I need seeds that I haven’t grown myself I like to buy local. I prefer local growers because their seeds were developed in and for my climate, and don’t need to travel that far. I also like supporting local businesses because when the supply chain becomes an issue, we will be happy to have them nearby.

Despite its early arrival, the seed catalog season is upon us, our annual reminder that it is time to take stock of our seeds and see what is still viable and what needs to be achieved. I’m starting by checking Salt Spring Seeds online to see what they have this year. I don’t wait for Seedy Saturday in February, because I like to know what seeds I have before. That way when I go to Seedy Saturday the pressure is released and I can have fun looking for things I didn’t know I wanted.

Before that, however, I have my own seed. On each package, kept or purchased, I write the date of sowing and the year until which they are still viable. Before sowing each crop, I test the viability of the seeds by sprinkling a few on a damp paper towel to see how many sprouts and how long it takes; if only half germinate, I will sow twice as much and I will not use that seed again.

I store the sorted seed packets in airtight plastic jars that once held chocolate ice cream. FYI, I didn’t buy it. I have more self-discipline than David and in addition, I prefer vanilla. The stuff is very bad for David, so I eat it to keep him from succumbing to temptation. Also, I need the containers.

I throw all the desiccant packets I bought in supplement bottles and Taiwanese tea bags in each jar, but I suspect that dried breadcrumbs would work just as well. The seeds last longer when stored in a cool, dry place so I save space in my lovely cold pantry. Have I already mentioned how much I love my pantry? Every house should have one, especially when there are gardeners living there, but we are getting ahead of ourselves. Pantry is something we traditionally discuss later in the year, and Ecclesiastes is right.

Last year we started growing garlic on a large scale, using seeds from a number of local growers. Since local seeds are adapted to our climate, it is always best to find a local source. This section invites any local producer with a catalog to send it to mary_lowther@yahoo.ca. I am always looking for new ideas.

Division Head, Agribusiness, Natural Resources and Project Development, Heritage Bank Plc., Mr. Olugbenga Awe, said he was working with 30 seed companies to boost seed production in Nigeria.

According to Awe, the fact that the federal government, through the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), imported 140,000 metric tonnes of seed from Mexico in a staggering amount was an indication of the huge gap in space. seed company of the country.

He added that his seed multiplication exercise aims to make Nigeria self-sufficient in seed production.

Awe said, “In the future, what we are trying to achieve from the seed multiplication exercise is for us to be self-sufficient in seed production and stop importing seeds.

“As a bank, we are working with CBN, the Lake Chad Research Institute (LCRI) and a few seed companies to multiply seeds. Our farmers can now buy seeds from local seed companies in Nigeria, as this would reduce the pressure on the Nigerian foreign exchange market. “

He stressed the need to perpetuate the initiative by bringing the program to the Lagos Commodities and Futures Exchange (LCFE).

“We will replicate this initiative in corn, rice and cocoa. We take these programs seriously because we believe the future is bright if we continue down the path we have taken, ”he said.

Previously, LCFE Director General Mr. Akin Akeredolu-Ale said the volume of seeds that would come out of the program would create enough seeds in the ecosystem and stop importing seeds into the country.

Kentucky volleyball won the No.7 seed in the NCAA tournament in Sunday’s support reveal.

Only the country’s top 16 teams receive seeds, while the rest of the field wins general offers. The seeds secure a field advantage for at least the first two rounds, three in Kentucky’s case.

The Wildcats won the SEC Championship and Auto Conference Offer last week, sweeping Florida 3-0 to clinch the title.

Kentucky finished their regular season 24-4, with a 17-1 conference record. The team’s only SEC loss came to South Carolina on the road, while its non-conference losses came to Creighton, Wisconsin and Louisville early on. All four teams also heard their names called in the fork, with Louisville winning the No.1 seed.

The UK’s first round opponent is Southeast Missouri State (SEMO), which finished 26-7 and won the Ohio Valley Conference Auto Offer. The Redhawks were the only OVC team to participate in the tournament.

If Kentucky succeeds against SEMO, the team will host the winner of Illinois and West Virginia, two general teams, with the Mountaineers taking home their first-ever all-around bid for the tournament.

Barring a disruption in the first two rounds, Kentucky would then be paired against No. 10 Nebraska in the Sweet 16. The Cornhuskers finished 21-7 and won a general offer for the tournament.

Continuing with the assumption that support goes as planned, the Elite Eight would feature a National Championship rematch between the Wildcats and this year’s No.2 seed Texas.

Great Britain beat the Longhorns in four sets to win their first domestic championship in program history at last year’s tournament.

The road has been mapped out for Kentucky volleyball as the team aims for its second straight national championship. Kentucky will host SEMO at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, December 3 at Memorial Coliseum.

Baylor outside hitter Avery Skinner and the Bears are set to land one of the top eight domestic seeds for the upcoming NCAA tournament.


Rod Aydelotte, Tribune-Herald


It became a tradition in late fall for the Baylor volleyball team to pass the NCAA selection Sunday to head coach Ryan McGuyre. What makes the team bonding experience even warmer and fuzzier than Christmas carols and hot chocolate are the lofty seeds and welcoming spots that bears seem to regularly accumulate these days.

This tradition is expected to continue on Sunday. Baylor is a lock to land at any of the NCAA’s 16 host venues, not to mention one of the tournament’s most senior seeds, which will be revealed via a 7:30 p.m. selection show on ESPNU.

Baylor was ranked No.7 nationally in last week’s Top 25 AVCA, and that was before the Bears (20-5 overall, 14-2 Big 12) closed out the regular season with a pair of wins. on the road against Oklahoma. Baylor also came in at No. 3 in the most recent NCAA RPI rankings, so the Bears could even push for a National Top 4 seed. At the very least, they’ll land somewhere in the 5-8 range.

The NCAA tournament will return to 64 teams this year after reducing the field to 48 last spring in response to COVID-19. Baylor was 20-7 overall last year and beat Pepperdine in the NCAA tournament before losing to fifth-seeded Nebraska in the Sweet 16, 3-0.

This year’s Baylor roster may be packed with as many talent as any group in school history, having added the 2020-21 Kentucky All-American Avery Skinner in the offseason. . With Skinner, Lauren Harrison and Yossiana Pressley, the all-time killing leader, the Bears have as much power on the pins as any program in the country.

Kenya’s economy is fueled by informal enterprises, which contribute 33.8% of the country’s GDP and provide 83.4% of total employment outside of small-scale agriculture, according to data from the country’s statistics office. The contribution of these companies is essential to the country’s economy, but they remain underserved by traditional banking institutions, preventing them from access funding necessary to grow.

On the other hand, the funding gap left by conventional banking institutions presented an opportunity for innovation, leading to the birth of fintechs like Asilimi. Over the past three years, the Kenyan startup has offered a lifeline to merchants in Kenya by allowing them to conduct mobile money transactions without transfer fees (through its Leja app).

And now, after securing $ 2 million in pre-seed funding ($ 1 million in equity and $ 1 million in debt), the startup is heading into its next phase of growth, which will involve granting merchant loans offering more relief to this often overlooked sub-group. and considered high risk by the traditional banking sector.

Funding came from various investors, including Fredrik Jung Abbou, dual founder of Licorne and Norrsken Impact Accelerator, while the roundtable benefited from the participation of the French Public Investment Bank (Bpifrance) and GreenTec Capital Partners.

Asilimia is set to use the funding to hire talent as it seeks to refine its technology and expand into another market in East Africa. It will also provide loans to micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) based on data from its Leja app.

“We have entered a phase where we are exploring ways to extend much needed credit for traders to purchase equipment or products to support their businesses,” Asilimia co-founder and CEO Tekwane Mwendwa told TechCrunch.

Morgane Kablan, is the other co-founder and COO of the startup.

By providing mobile loans, Asilimia will join a space that has around 100 loan applications, including San Francisco-based Branch by Branch International Ltd and PayPal-backed Tala.

The Digital Lenders Association of Kenya told TechCrunch in a previous interview that about 25 apps it represents spend around $ 40 million per month. The apps offer unsecured loans, which makes them attractive to borrowers looking for quick cash.

In addition to allowing users to conduct mobile money transactions at no cost, Leja also supports accounting, making it easier for merchants to track their income and outflows, without the need for technical or accounting knowledge. The platform provides valuable data that Asilimia plans to use to provide loans to users.

Mwendwa said Asilimia will create credit scoring models from the data collected to determine the amount that will be extended to borrowers.

“We will take into account their B2B transactions, cash flow, sales, debts and expenses, because all of that information is in the app. This is possible because traders love to use our app which unlike other loan apps has inventory management. I like to think of our app as the operating system for informal businesses and we are happy that it is a one-stop-shop for traders, ”Mwendwa said.

“Another thing that traders struggle with is airtime reloading. We interact with them on a daily basis and understand their weak points, and therefore we want to give them all the support they need so that they can continue to do business – we will also extend the interest-free top-up credit, ”he said. -he declares.

Mwendwa said that a normal user makes about three transactions through the app every day and the business has grown by 30% week after week. Around 27,000 users use its apps, with total transactions made through the Leja app reaching around $ 20 million.

Previously, the startup had gone through the prestigious Station F incubation program in Paris and the Norrsken Impact Accelerator program.

Beyond East Africa, Asilimia is exploring growth opportunities in other regions as it seeks to continue to close the funding gap currently faced by traders across the continent.

“MSMEs play a vital role across Africa and facilitating their success is tremendous for the continent as a whole,” said Funda Sezgi, Co-Founder and CEO of Norrsken Impact Accelerator.

“Tekwane and his team have come up with a solution that works and we are delighted to support them as they contribute to prosperity in a key sector for the African economy. “
