Poultry Transfer Agreement

first_imgStudents interested in careers in the poultry industry will now have access to more poultry science-based resources and a new path to pursue an undergraduate degree through a transfer agreement between the University of Georgia and the University of North Georgia.The opportunities for good-paying jobs in poultry and related industries are plentiful, with graduates receiving between one and five job offers, according to Todd Applegate, head of the UGA Department of Poultry Science in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.“We really need young people going into poultry across the entire sector. There’s a breadth of opportunity with integrated poultry companies and also other supporting companies such as finance, feed, equipment supply, pharmaceutical, food safety/quality and more. We try to communicate these options, as well as the available managerial roles and ability to move up in leadership through various companies,” he said.With the high demand for graduates, the department is looking to improve visibility of the industry and pathways into the industry.Transfer agreement officialA new transfer agreement with UNG — with its main campus situated in Gainesville, Georgia — builds on an existing partnership between the two universities and gives transfer students assurance that courses will transfer seamlessly.“They don’t have to waste any time, money or stress that they don’t have to,” said Jessica Fife, outreach coordinator for UGA’s poultry science department.“Students still have to qualify for admission to UGA as a transfer student, so it doesn’t circumvent that, but it does expedite the pathway. It’s a win-win to get the associate degree at UNG and bachelor’s at UGA,” said Applegate. “What distinguishes our program is the focus on the whole animal — it’s much more tangible to talk through the science of that. Our program touches on so many different disciplines beyond what biology may cover, such as health and disease, preventative medicine, engineering concepts and animal behavior.”Linda Purvis, lecturer in biology at UNG, has spent almost a decade building the poultry science pathway in the associate of science degree program. She was a transfer student from UNG to UGA, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in poultry science before earning master’s and doctoral degrees from the UGA College of Veterinary Medicine. “(Purvis is) very energetic and very passionate about poultry,” said Applegate. “She’s a good mentor for those students and helps them think about what career options look like.”New curriculaIn order to reach students before college, UGA’s Department of Poultry Science has also designed a new high school introductory course into poultry science and avian biology as part of the Georgia Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources Pathways. The purpose is to establish an in-depth understanding and appreciation of Georgia’s top agricultural industry among high school students.Approximately 168,000 Georgian jobs are connected directly or indirectly to the poultry industry, and producers in 101 counties generate more than $1 million worth of poultry at the farm level according to UGA research.The high school presentations and activities introduce students to terminology and basic knowledge of modern poultry science and the commercial poultry sector, including anatomy and physiology, reproduction, genetics, nutrition, conventional and alternative housing/production methods, poultry varieties, avian health, processing, marketing and more.“There are so many applications of STEM in the poultry industry, such as machine learning and artificial intelligence. For students looking for real-world applications, I think they need those real-world applications much earlier to think about their careers. As we go into technology applications, this next generation is ready for that,” said Applegate.Fife developed the curriculum in collaboration with UGA poultry science and agricultural leadership, education and communication faculty and Georgia Agricultural Education Curriculum and Technology Director Christa Steinkamp.“This will be the first time Georgia will have courses dedicated solely to poultry science in a high school agriculture education course,” said Steinkamp. “Even nationally, stand-alone poultry science courses are rare. A few other states have similar high school poultry science curriculum, but there are only a few national Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources (AFNR) standards relating to poultry. This is an interesting fact, considering the role the poultry industry plays in the overall agriculture industry in Georgia and globally.”Another set of lessons and activities developed by the department is geared toward elementary-aged students in partnership with Georgia Farm Bureau to use in elementary classrooms. They will be distributed to all of Farm Bureau’s 10 districts through the organization’s Ag in the Classroom and new Mobile Ag Classroom. The UGA Department of Poultry Science’s recruitment efforts are supported by a gift from the U.S. Poultry & Egg Harold E. Ford Foundation. To learn more, visit read more

Would you tell your family if you won a house?

first_imgMegan Pattison won her home at Biggera Waters via the RSL Art Union — and had a great time telling family and friends. Photo: Adam HeadIF you won a house, would you tell your nearest and dearest?According to a study by RSL Art Union, one in 20 of us plan to never reveal this secret windfall — even to our closest friends and family.The survey also uncovered almost 12 per cent of winners would only tell their loved ones after they’d sold the house and invested the money elsewhere.But silent winners were in the minority. Almost 38 per cent of respondents said they’d not only tell family and friends, they’d offer them a room to stay as well.RSL Art Union Queensland general manager, Tracey Bishop, said in reality, most winners changed plans once they’d received the golden phone call.“After winning, the excitement makes it much more difficult,” she said.Ms Bishop said the initial reaction from overwhelmed winners varied.She recalled one gentleman who was distinctly cool on the phone when told of his $2 million prize.“He was so calm. He didn’t want anyone at work to know. He literally just said, ‘Ah, thank you very much, I’ll call you back,’ and we were all stunned,” she said.Ms Bishop said many people liked to share their good fortune — even with strangers. She recalled a recent winner who saw someone in a checkout queue who was unable to afford all their items.“So she just paid for her groceries,” Ms Bishop said.Ms Bishop was thrilled about her job which saw lives changed for the better.“A woman from South Australia, she was around 21-years-old, and her and her sister were estranged from her family. She won a place down in Sydney and she actually got them both on their feet. She bought an apartment for them both with the money she received … started a degree … and she eventually moved to England. To change someone’s life is fantastic.”Megan Pattison is one of the lucky few who can claim the title of prize home winner.In February, she won a $2 million home in Biggera Waters on the Gold Coast, and couldn’t wait to share the good news.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home3 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor3 hours ago“I rang a couple of good friends and told them,” she said.“I didn’t tell my mother or my daughter. I waited until they came to the house and then told them.”She said her daughter was stunned when she revealed their new home.“She was like, ‘Is this my house?’ and I said, ‘Yes!’ and she jumped up and down and did a bit of a fist pump and was very happy.”Ms Pattison is also among the generous majority. She shares the house with her 12-year-old daughter … and her ex-husband.“Most people find that that’s a little bit of an interesting arrangement — we’ve been separated for nine years and just got our divorce a couple of weeks ago,” she said.“It works well for both of us because I travel a lot for work so he gets to spend time with his daughter which is a great thing and she loves the fact that he lives with us.”Ms Pattison said she was cautious when revealing her good fortune to friends.“I was very careful not to tell people or to tell people not to say anything until the (official) news came out. That didn’t happen for a couple of weeks. I was very careful too with the people that I knew that were social media queens. I was very careful not to tell them.”Ms Pattison still buys RSL Art Union tickets, so she’ll be in with a chance to win the next $2 million prize — the choice between a two-bedroom apartment in Bondi or a three-bedroom townhouse at Byron Bay.

Green light for Chrysaor’s decommissioning plan for Ganymede platform topsides

first_imgChrysaor’s decommissioning plan for the Ganymede platform topsides, which is located on the Jupiter area in the UK sector of the North Sea, has been approved by UK authorities. The decline in production led to the cessation of production thatwas approved by OGA in 2016, enabling decommissioning activities to begin on thefacilities in 2017. The platforms are in cold suspension, awaiting removal anddisposal. In 2000, NW Bell and Europa came online. This backed out Ganymede and some wells were shut-in. When NW Bell and Europa declined in 2001, the Ganymede wells were reinstated. The Ganymede field is located approximately 132 kilometres east of the Theddlethorpe Gas Terminal (TGT) terminal. First production from the Ganymede Field and Callisto Field was in September 1995. The Jupiter field was net cash flow negative in 2014 which initiated decommissioning activities on the installations to start and production to cease from Jupiter in November 2016. Chrysaor, as the operator of the Jupiter fields, applied to the OffshorePetroleum Regulator for Environment and Decommissioning (OPRED) to obtainapproval for the decommissioning of the following Ganymede ZD topsides. The Jupiter fields were discovered in 1972 by the 49/16-4 wellwhich encountered 325 feet of gas column in the Rotliegendes Group LemanSandstone Formation in what became the Ganymede Field. The exploration andappraisal programme continued through the 1990s with discoveries in the Europa,Callisto, and Sinope Fields. Source: Chrysaor The schedule outlined in the decommissioning programme started with the well plugging and abandonment in 2016 and will span approximately seven years. The Jupiter fields consist of several separate gas accumulationswhich lie within blocks 49/16a, 49/17a,center_img As for the Ganymede topside, it weighs 1,082 tonnes and theinstallation stands in 33.5 metres of water. Other installations, including theGanymede ZD jacket and pipelines in the Jupiter area, will be decommissioned atan appropriate time and covered by their own decommissioning programmes. The first phase was the development of the Ganymede ZD normally unmannedinstallation (NUI) platform and Callisto subsea tie-back to Ganymede in 1995. Jupiter fields 49/22a, 49/22c, 49/22d and 49/23a (licences P.025 and P.033) inthe Southern North Sea of the UKCS. The Jupiter fields were developed in two phases to support theproduction from the Jupiter area using the LOGGS Gathering Station to transportthe produced oil and gas from the field for further processing and sale. The second phase was the development of the Europa EZ NUI platformand NW Bell ZX subsea tie-back to Callisto ZM in 2000. The Jupiter facilities currently consist of two Jupiter surface installationsGanymede ZD and Europa EZ, one subsea tee at the intersection of the Europa EZto Callisto ZM, two Jupiter subsea tiebacks with wellhead protection structures– Callisto ZM and NW Bell ZX – and the inter-field pipelines. The Ganymede ZD, Europa EZ, and subsea tiebacks Callisto ZM and NWBell ZX produced 494 bscf of gas up to the termination of production in 2016.last_img read more
