COVID: Gov. Cuomo To Visit White House Today

first_imgShare:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window) Photo: The White House / Tia DufourWASHINGTON – New York Governor Andrew Cuomo will visit the White House today.President Trump said at Monday’s Coronavirus Task Force Briefing that he will meet with Cuomo in the oval office.The governor’s office confirmed the meeting. According to Trump, the meeting was Cuomo’s idea.New York has been the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in the United States. The president said of the governor, “believe it or not — we get along.”Trump and Cuomo have had a hot-and-cold dynamic during the COVID-19 outbreak, sometimes trading barbs, while at other times appearing somewhat conciliatory.WNYNewsNow asked Congressman Tom Reed during his teleconference Tuesday morning what he’d like to see as a result of the meeting from his perspective as a New York Representative. Reed says it’ll be important for both officials to put aside their differences during the meeting.“I think both should hear each other out, and one of the things we do in the Problem Solvers Caucus that serves us well is that we dont just talk to each other, we listen to each other,” Reed said. “I hope that this is the sentiment and the culture of the exchange that happens there because New York has a lot to offer the rest of the nation as to the lessons of COVID-19, and by listening to each other, that experience with the problems that we face there could be cut short and prevented in other areas of the nation if it is truly given in a good faith nature to focus on the problems facing people, rather than engaging in partisan politics as the motivating factor for the meeting.”last_img read more

Research Field Day

first_imgThe annual University of Georgia Cotton and Peanut Research Field Day will be held Wednesday, Sept. 7, at the UGA Tifton Campus.The field day will begin at the Gibbs Farm, a research station on William Gibbs Road in Tifton, Georgia, at 8 a.m. and will conclude at the Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village.Jared Whitaker, UGA Cooperative Extension cotton agronomist, credits the field day as being a great way for farmers and industry personnel to learn about recent developments in UGA research regarding two of Georgia’s top commodities.“The cotton and peanut teams share information on what’s happening in the industry. We provide everybody an opportunity to come together and see the research that UGA is working on,” Whitaker said.The field day consists of talks given by members of the UGA Cotton and Peanut teams, a tour of the Gibbs Farm, research presentations and lunch, when members of the Georgia Cotton Commission and Georgia Peanut Commission will provide closing remarks.Some of the topics to be covered include plant breeding, agronomy, entomology, pathology, fertility and irrigation. Whitaker said any farmer or industry consultant is invited to the field day.“A tremendous number of topics and ideas will be covered and shared, so there’s probably something for everybody in the peanut and cotton industries and also for those who just want to learn about what’s going on with cotton and peanut research at UGA in Tifton,” Whitaker said.Scott Monfort, UGA Extension peanut agronomist, said most of Georgia’s peanuts are doing well this year despite prolonged periods of drought this summer.“The irrigated crop looks pretty good, and I think we’ll be a little bit above average there,” Monfort said. “As for the nonirrigated crop, it is struggling due to a lack of rain and extreme temperatures. We are remaining hopeful that non-irrigated peanuts will bounce back, allowing Georgia growers to produce a good crop.”To reserve a space at the field day and for more information, contact Michela Rineair at 229-386-3006 or at [email protected] by Friday, Sept. 2.(Kyle Dawson is an intern on the UGA Tifton Campus.)last_img read more
