2015 Some Near-Sure Bets For The New Year

Sure, we humans like to think of a new year as a blank slate; but deep down we know that history repeats itself. We know that along with the unexpected revelations and unpredictable fads, 2015 will bring us more NFL rap sheets, Facebook privacy settings reconfigurations, fracking debates, "stand somebody else's ground" military actions, sighs over a "do nothing" Congress, major retailer security breaches and warnings of a comet that may or may not strike in 37 years.

Regional farmers’ market vendor workshops planned

Kansas farmers' markets across the state are doing much more than just providing a fresh food source. The farmers offering their produce, as well as the consumers taking advantage of the farm-fresh offerings are also simulating the local economy. There are now 130 active farmers' markets in Kansas compared to the 26 in operation in 1987. The growth in this sector helps provide Kansans with more revenue and more high-quality food choices.

In the early 1950s the average corn yield was around fifty bushels per acre. Flash forward to 2014 and the national average yield is pegged at around 170 bushels per acre. With the exceptions of severe weather (heat and drought), on average, corn yields have increased on average two bushel per acre per year. There are many factors contributing to this tripling of average yields involving all aspects of corn production.

Everyone Can Be a Naturalist!

For thousands of years, science was focused on something called "Natural History." Science had yet to be broken down in to the dozens of specialized fields that we know today, zoology, botany, chemistry, physics, and so many more. Ancient scientists were concerned about how everything on earth fitted together – the first naturalists studied everything from art to human anatomy to astronomy. What does this have to do with us today?
