The 2019 Wheat Quality Tour took place from April 29 through May 2, 2019. Approximately 75 people actively scouted hundreds of Kansas wheat fields in 20 groups and along six routes (Figure 1). The groups left Manhattan and headed to Colby on the first day, from Colby to Wichita on day 2, and finally from Wichita to Manhattan on day 3.

The Kansas wheat crop is overall in good condition; however, there are a few potential challenges. The overall 2019 production estimate for Kansas resulting from the tour was 306 million bushels of wheat, compared to 243 million bushels in 2018 and 282 million bushels in 2017. The current estimate corresponds to a yield of 47 bu/ac and an area abandonment of 6.5%. Weather conditions during the months of May and early June will be crucial in determining where final production will actually land.

The 2019 Kansas wheat crop is anywhere from two to four weeks behind normal for crop development. For instance, in previous years of the wheat tour, stages of crop development around the state ranged from early grain fill in south central Kansas to boot stage in northwest Kansas. This year, the furthest along fields sampled were in late boot or early heading stages in south central Kansas, and the majority of northwest Kansas is now just jointed (first node) (Figure 2). This delayed development is a consequence of below-average seasonal temperatures, as the departure from normal temperature during the growing season (October 1, 2018 to April 30, 2019) ranged anywhere from zero to minus 4.5 degrees F across the state (Figure 3).

One common theme of the 2019 Wheat Quality Tour was nutrient deficiency, specifically nitrogen and sulfur. While the frequency of fields showing nutrient deficiency symptoms was higher in some regions such as Edwards and Stafford counties (Figure 5), nutrient deficiencies were common across the entire state. Some potential explanations are:

Another common theme of fields visited during the 2019 Wheat Quality Tour was the lack of stand uniformity in fields that seemed to be uniform and have a good yield potential from the road (Figure 7). There are many potential causes for lack of stand uniformity and patchy stands, and the actual cause varies field-to-field. Nonetheless, producers are encouraged to inspect their fields closely for stand uniformity and yield potential before further investing in the crop with applications such as foliar fungicide.

On a positive note, the incidence of stripe and leaf rusts in the 2019 tour was very low and mostly in the second day of the tour, when the group scouted south-central Kansas and north central Oklahoma. While at low incidence at this time, stripe rust has been reported in Oklahoma for a few weeks and the recent rainfall events likely brought spores to Kansas fields. It will take approximately two weeks from the time spores are introduced to the fields until the lesions are visible to the naked eye; thus, we advise producers to scout their fields for the disease in the next few days. The majority of the state is still within fungicide application window and in case the disease is present, producers still have the option for spray. This decision should take into account the yield potential of the crop, the crop price, disease incidence, weather conditions, variety susceptibility to the disease, and the costs of product and application.

The above factors are a few of the major challenges that the 2019 Kansas wheat crop is currently facing. While all should contribute to restricted wheat yields to a certain extent, the largest uncertainty when estimating wheat production at the state level is the weather during grain filling. Because the crop is two to four weeks behind in development for the majority of the state, the cool and moist conditions during grain fill are essential to ensure a decent crop. If warm and dry conditions arise, the wheat yield potential can be severely limited.

The next World Tunnel Congress will be held in Naples from 3rd to 9th May 2019. The conference A key event for the engineering and geotechnical sectors linked to tunnelling, promoted by the International Tunnelling and Underground Space Association (ITA-AITES) and Società Italiana Gallerie (SIG).

WTC Naples 2019 will host conferences, seminars and workshops related to the world of underground design and construction, with a focus on engineering and innovation. This edition will be characterized by a distinctive and unique perspective due to the inclusion of themes suggested by the city of Naples and its context, and more generally by the Italian background.

From May 39, 2019, the World Tunnel Congress will take place in the South-Italian city of Naples. On May 9, the final day of the congress, participants will have the opportunity of joining technical...

On Friday, May 3rd, 2019, there will be an Open House in the Barchas Room of Green Library featuring recent acquisitions in medieval and early modern manuscripts, printed books, and other new materials. One of the new items on display will be a collection of rare handwritten documents from fifteenth-century Bologna, a main center of Inquisition activity in Italy, related to trials and investigations involving Jews--which is unusual since the Inquisition in Italy focused more on combating Christian heresy.

Gould celebrated her 17th birthday in early 2019. In January of that year, she began dating Thomas Griffiths, a fellow A Level student at her school, whom she had known since they were in Year Seven. Griffiths was her first boyfriend. Gould's mother has commented that her husband "wasn't overly keen" on Griffiths "because he didn't say much", but she assumed this aspect of his character was just down to his age. As Gould's exams approached, she wanted to focus on her studies, and felt the relationship was not right for her, so ended it in early May.[3][4][5][6] Gould said that she felt suffocated by Griffiths's attention, and on the night before her murder, told friends he had not taken the split well.[2][7]

On 3 May 2019, Griffiths, of Derry Hill, Wiltshire, was dropped off at school by his mother. After emailing his teachers to tell them he was feeling unwell, he walked to Chippenham bus station where he caught a bus back to Derry Hill, before returning home. His mother also returned home, and after hiding in the wardrobe of his bedroom so that she would not discover him absent from school, and waiting for her to depart again, he took the keys to a silver Ford Focus and drove to Gould's house. Following an argument, Griffiths attempted to strangle her, then used a knife he had taken from the family kitchen to stab her in the neck 13 times.[2][3][4]

Griffiths was charged with murder on 6 May, and appeared before Salisbury Magistrates Court the following day. He appeared at Bristol Crown Court on 9 May, where a provisional trial date was set for 28 October. He did not enter a plea, and was remanded in custody. At a plea hearing on 29 August 2019, Griffiths pleaded guilty to Gould's murder, and was remanded in custody to await sentence. Recorder Peter Blair QC also lifted reporting restrictions that prevented Griffiths being named by media outlets, describing his crime as "extremely grave".[8][9][10][11]

Following Griffiths's sentence, the case was subsequently referred to the Attorney General's office under the unduly lenient sentences scheme, but on 6 December 2019 it was announced that it could not be referred to the Court of Appeal because the law prevents people under the age of 21 from being given a whole life tariff. Speaking about the decision, Carole Gould described the legal process as a "crazy system" where those under the age of 18 "have the same starting point" as younger children: "There's a huge difference between a 10-year-old and an 18-year-old. And really, the laws need to be changed".[13][15]

Undisputed lords of leather-stud metal, Judas Priest show no signs of slowing down after 4 plus decades of recording, touring and tearing up metal anthems in front of packed audiences. Kicking off their 2019 Firepower North American Tour at the always welcoming and state-of-the-art sounding Hard Rock Live Event Center at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida, the five men hit the stage in full force; fueled by the energy of a clamoring sea of denim and leather, those who have loved Priest from the very beginning. Firepower is actually their highest charting record to date, a staggering accomplishment if you take into account their 18 albums shredding catalog.
