Teachers at work growing young minds through GrowNextGen

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest John Thomas recently returned from the 2018 Commodity Classic in Anaheim, Ca. with new ideas for his work as a teacher in Tolles’ Ag Bioscience program.Established in 1974, Tolles is a career and technical school providing a launch pad for both high school students and adult learners located south of Plain City. Tolles serves Dublin, Fairbanks, Hilliard, Jonathan Alder, London, Madison-Plains and Jefferson Local school districts. Tolles’ 223,000 square-foot facility boasts instructional and functional labs, academic classrooms, an auditorium and conference center, as well as a fully-operational restaurant, hair and nail salon and spa, small animal care facility, automotive repair and maintenance center, digital media lab, community preschool, medical and fire labs, and many other career spaces.Thomas teaches Environmental and Advanced Life science classes at Tolles main campus, and teaches Tolles’ satellite Ag Bioscience program housed at Fairbanks Middle School. This program is one of many for students who have an interest in agriculture and environmental science including Outdoor Careers program on Tolles’ main campus and FFA at Fairbanks High School.Thomas was invited to attend Commodity Classic through GrowNextGen, an organization that has created a network of educators who do work with soybeans and the Ohio Soybean Council. This event gave science teachers a chance to learn from experts in the field including researchers and farmers.While at the Commodity Classic, Thomas followed Monsanto’s “Journey of the Seed,” and learned how favorable traits can be added through biotechnology to produce a more successful crop. Monsanto provided each teacher with both GMO and non-GMO soybeans, and Thomas plans to use these during a classroom lesson on GMOs.“The area of biotechnology is exploding right now. When we think about tech industries, we usually think about digital technologies such as coding or robotics,” Thomas said. “However, advancements in biotechnology are happening just as fast. With the advent of CRISPR (a family of DNA sequences in bacteria that has been used to modify genomes) there are many start up biotechnology industries that are coming out of nowhere. We now have the ability to quickly modify genes in a way that is similar to computer coding.”In addition to acquiring valuable lessons to bring back to the classroom, Thomas was also exposed to new technological advancements in the field of biotechnology and agriculture. Additionally, Thomas had the opportunity to meet and network with teachers from California and across the country with whom he shared curriculum connections and best practices, further deepening his content knowledge to bring to his students.“The goal of my program is to open student’s eyes to the world of sustainable agriculture,” Thomas said. “We are trying to produce food using best management practices. I love working alongside my students to solve real-world problems.”GrowNextGen has reached more than 20,000 teachers and 500,000 students in Ohio and beyond. The program brings agriculture science to the classroom, joining industry and teachers by providing real-world educational tools to engage the next generation workforce. Backed by funding from the Ohio Soybean Council and Ohio soybean farmers, GrowNextGen helps expose students to different career fields in a thriving industry.For additional information about Tolles call 614-873-4666, email cbentleybradshaw@tollestech.com or visit www.tollestech.com.last_img read more

Court Blows Away Permits for Wind Turbine Eagle Kills

first_imgClean energy doesn’t trump agency’s obligationsWhile promoting renewable energy projects may well be a “worthy goal, it is no substitute for the [agency’s] obligations to comply with NEPA and to conduct a studied review and response to concerns about the environmental implications of major agency action.” Accordingly, the Court held that FWS violated its procedural requirements and that the 30-year rule must therefore be set aside.The practical effect of this court ruling is less than clear because despite creating uncertainty in the wind turbine business and hardening beliefs that the Obama Administration is attempting to pick winners and losers in energy, FWS is today considering new regulations in this area.At the same time that the proposed 30-year rule was published, FWS issued an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, considering comprehensive changes to the 2009 regulations. On June 23, 2014, FWS stated its intent to prepare an EIS or EA on these changes allowing wind turbines to kill eagles (but not solar panels or even electric transmission lines?). RELATED ARTICLESU.S. Will Permit Some Eagle DeathsWind Farms Kill Scores of EaglesWind Farm Operator Mum on Bird DeathsStudy Finds Wind Turbines a Lesser Threat to BirdsSolar Thermal Plant Blamed for Bird DeathsOwner of Wind Turbines Fined $1 Million in Bird DeathsWind Turbines Blamed for Bat Fatalities On August 11, a federal court set aside the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) rule allowing 30-year permits to “take” bald and golden eagles. In an industry born from tax credits and government energy policies, an interruption of one of those key policies can bring wind turbine construction to a halt.The Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, which was enacted in 1940, imposes criminal and civil penalties against “whoever” shall “take, possess, sell, purchase, barter, offer to sell, purchase or barter, transport, export or import” bald and golden eagles, except as permitted by the Department of Interior Secretary.On September 11, 2009, FWS issued regulations for the first time that “authorize limited take of bald eagles … and golden eagles .., for 5 years or less, where the take is not the purpose of the activity but is a foreseeable consequence of that activity.” The 2009 regulations themselves included but a few references to wind turbines. For instance, FWS cited “a company interested in siting a wind-power facility” as an example of an entity that “may qualify for a programmatic take permit” (74 Fed. Reg. at 46,842). Industry cites uncertainty of five-year limitOne issue not addressed by the guidance “was the wind industry’s extensive comments that the five-year maximum tenure of permits under the Eagle Take Rule is fundamentally unworkable for the industry considering the life of most wind projects is 20 to 30 years.” The industry’s chief complaint was that the uncertainty surrounding the renewal of five-year programmatic eagle take permits was preventing operators from obtaining the necessary 30-year financing for wind energy projects.On December 9, 2013, the FWS adopted a “strictly administrative” rule increasing the maximum duration of programmatic permits to take bald and golden eagles from five years to 30 years, which I wrote about in the blog post Okay to Kill Eagles with Wind Turbines But Not with Solar Panels.However, the court in Shearwater et al. v. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service et al., concluded that FWS failed to show an adequate basis in the record for deciding not to prepare an EIS [environmental impact statement], much less an EA [environmental assessment] prior to increasing the maximum duration for programmatic eagle take permits by six-fold.center_img Soon after the five-year rule was issued in 2009, there was a substantial increase in the development of wind power for renewable energy purposes. Because “eagles can be killed by colliding with structures such as wind turbines,” FWS developed the Eagle Conservation Plan Guidance for the wind industry to “help project operators in complying with regulatory requirements and avoiding the unintentional ‘take’ of eagles at wind energy facilities.” Stuart Kaplow is an environmental attorney and the principal of the law firm Stuart D.
