Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast December 2, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Colder air came in to the state yesterday behind a frontal boundary that swept through the region. The weather system that brought the front also triggered some wrap around moisture that continues in some areas today. We look for this light spotty moisture, a mixture of rain sleet and wet snow, to continue to rotate through the state for at least part of the day before finally exiting to the east. The strong north flow coming across Lake Erie also means we have to watch for lake effect precipitation, especially in far NE Ohio. Moisture ends by midday to early afternoon in far western OH, if not sooner, but may linger into mid or even late afternoon in eastern areas. WE do finally dry down by sunset in all areas of the state.Partly sunny, chilly and dry tomorrow and Wednesday. We can see a bit of lake effect snow fire off again overnight Wednesday night, and at times the clouds will spread to dominate most of Ohio. However, snow totals look minor, and will be most concentrated in far NE Ohio, in the typical lake effect areas. Back to sunshine and some clouds for Thursday and Friday, with no new precipitation.High pressure parks over the eastern corn belt for the weekend, drawing down chilly air on north flow ahead of the High on Saturday, but then south flow develops on the backside of the high for Sunday, and we can see temps climb, perhaps even to normal and above normal levels. That south flow will feed into our next front, making it a bit stronger.Rains arrive Monday and continue through Tuesday of next week. Combined totals can be from .25″-1″ with coverage at 100% of the state. Rain totals will be split pretty evenly across both days. We do go drier for next Wednesday, and stay dry then into the following weekend. That means we have only 1 truly good threat of significant moisture over the next 2 weeks, and that happens early next week. 10 day liquid equivalent precipitation totals are at right.last_img read more

Is Microsoft Blocking Antivirus Apps from Windows RT?

first_imgmarkhachman If you’re looking to buy a Windows RT tablet, security vendors said, don’t expect to be able to protect it with third- party antivirus or other security software. In fact, it seems that Microsoft may block third-party antivirus vendors from developing security solutions for Windows RT.Microsoft won’t allow such software to be sold on its online store, which is the only way to load applications onto Windows RT devices, security vendors say. It’s not known whether Microsoft will develop its own security solution for Windows RT, although most security observers assume Microsoft will do so.Unlike Windows 8, with which it shares code and most of a name, Windows RT is both a different operating system and a new business model for Microsoft. While Windows 8 runs on traditional Intel processors, Windows RT is compiled for the low-power ARM chips that power the vast majority of the world’s smartphones and tablets. Applications written for Windows RT can run on Windows 8, but a Windows 8 app must be specially compiled to run on both Windows 8 and RT – something most apps apparently do, Microsoft says.Security Is Locked Out Of The Windows StoreThats only part of the difference. Users can load whatever they software they wish onto Windows 8 machines, via DVD or online distribution. but Windows RT apps can only be downloaded from Microsoft’s online store. And that’s the problem, according to Gerry Egan, a senior director of product management for the Security Technology and Response Group at security vendor Symantec.McAfee’s Marcio Mello, Sr. Director of Product Management, agreed. “Windows RT (as a SKU) is completely closed on the Desktop side. There’s no Win32 API there and there’s no way for an [anti-malware anti-virus] vendor to deliver their apps on Windows RT/ARM.”So despite the uncertainty,  will Symantec design a version of its software for Windows RT? “The answer is yes,” Egan said. “The question is whether we can, or whether there will be a need to. We predict that there will be a need to, and we’ll have to work with Microsoft to figure out how we can, and remain in compliance with their store policies.”So far, the “jury is still out on the dynamics of the Windows RT marketplace,” Egan explained. “We don’t know what Microsoft’s next moves are going to be.”Microsoft: “No Comment”When asked to clarify the situation, Microsoft representatives declined to comment. “Microsoft has nothing to share on the topic at the moment,” a Microsoft spokeswoman said via email. “We’ll let you know if that changes.”Until Windows RT is successfully attacked – and it hasn’t been yet, at least publicly – any confusion will be from longtime Windows users, who have become accustomed to installing an antivirus package to defeat malware. The questions will be whether or not Windows RT will actually need antivirus software – and whether or not consumers will ask for it out of habit. Security vendors noted that Windows RT may act like Apple’s iOS – security solutions are available, but most consumers simply don’t bother.A representative from security competitor Kaspersky Lab confirmed that the company’s Kaspersky Internet Security and Kaspersky Antivirus would not run on Windows RT. “Our KAV/KIS 2013 should work fine on the Surface Pro but will not work with RT,” he said in an email.Microsoft hasn’t publicly revealed whether WindowsRT on ARM will be able to run legacy products, like older versions of the Kaspersky software, the Kaspersky spokesman said. “We hear that Symantec is developing plug-ins for the RT ARM version, but we’re not committed one way or the other on developing something for RT,” he said.A spokesman for AVG, a popular antivirus software package, said that the company also hasn’t decided whether or not to develop a Windows RT solution. But the typical development time would be between 5 to 8 months, he said, pushing a release well beyond Windows RT’s October launch date.Stores’ Security Can VaryMicrosoft’s strict Store policies are actually a security measure in their own right, Symantec’s Egan noted. Both Apple and apparently Microsoft maintain high levels of control over their online apps stores, and the amount of malware on Apple’s iOS app store is very small.On the other hand, Google has curated the apps on its Google Play store much more lightly, and allows users to “sideload” apps downloaded from other stores. That, in part, has led to an enormous spike in Android malware; up 472% from July 2011 through November 2011, with thousands of new versions of Android malware found recently.Security image courtesy of Shutterstock.

Throwback Thursday: Oklahoma State Beats St. Mary’s, Wins National Championship

first_imgI’d say this is legit, the cryatal ball has arrived in Stillwater @Lauren_Rew pic.twitter.com/u6a4yLZ17d— Jr Colmenares (@OSUJr) October 13, 2016So let’s take a dive back into the archives to see Oklahoma State’s title-winning game against St. Mary’s in the 1946 Sugar Bowl. It was the last time OSU would play in the Sugar Bowl until 2016, and the entire thing was incredible. Just listen to this opening of the game recap from the Sugar Bowl’s website.Men against boys. Even though the boys were pretty good, so were the bigger, more worldly men.Oklahoma A&M was a team that started seven war veterans, including fullback Jim Reynolds who flew 52 missions over Germany, and tackle Bert Cole who had been shot down over Yugoslavia and spent months among the Chetniks while making his way back to allied lines. In contrast, St. Mary’s was a lot like Alabama in 1945 with seven 17-year-old starters on a team with an average age of 18-1/2.Also, A&M, the heaviest team to play in the first 12 Sugar Bowls at a 203-pound average, was man-for-man 15 pounds larger than the Sugar Bowl’s youngest team ever.Oklahoma State rolled to a 33-13 win that day that flummoxed St. Mary’s coach Jim Phelan. He literally locked the media out of his locker room after the game before finally letting them in to chat.“Too much power – too much speed. And, above all, too much Fenimore.”Fenimore ran for 125 yards that day and two TDs. He threw for another. The win for AP No. 5 OSU capped off a 9-0 season. OSU allowed just 76 points all year (can you imagine the Vines we would have gotten had Glenn Spencer been coordinator?) Here’s a look at the full schedule which included Denver and Tulsa.screen-shot-2016-10-13-at-3-33-17-pmI have no idea why the AFCA retroactively awarded OSU with this national championship, but apparently we are shipping in the trophies, the crystal and everything that goes along with a title. Here is the AFCA’s reasoning:The Oklahoma State squad of 1945 (then-referred to as Oklahoma A&M) had an average margin of victory of 23.2 points and still hold numerous school records, including fewest points allowed, lowest average points allowed, fewest first downs allowed, fewest rushing yards allowed and fewest yards allowed per game. The 1945 squad also ranks in the top 10 in several more offensive and defensive categories, all of which is remarkable considering that season was played 70 years ago.The AP No. 1 team that year was Army. Army’s schedule was soft! Louisville Field! Melville PT Boats! SMH! Sad!screen-shot-2016-10-13-at-3-36-28-pmAll of this unfolding on Thursday elicited maybe the greatest tweet I have ever seen. Such sweet words I never thought I would hear. But now they are true. Oklahoma State has a national championship in football! And we have the trophy to prove it.Look what showed up at #okstate ?? pic.twitter.com/Pq6KdHOUlg— Allison Gappa (@AllisonGappa) October 13, 2016 Also, I bet none of these men every thought someone would make a GIF of them 70 years later.#okstate scores to beat St. Mary’s and win a national title.

Moore, a running back and athlete is a twin brother of Joshua Moore, who is an elite wide receiver recruit. They both hold offers from the likes of OU, Texas, Florida State, Tennessee, OSU and a slew of others.

Underwood and crew jumping in early to get in the sweepstakes for Hampton, who will likely be a soon-to-be five-star recruit. He’s a long, rangy point guard with silky smooth moves and a pretty nice jumper to boot. At 6-foot-4, he has the frame to develop and grow into a very desirable prospect at the next level. The second offer went out to shooting guard/small forward Cade Cunningham:https://twitter.com/CadeCunningham_/status/788110898992783361Cunningham is a 6-5, 180 pound prospect with a high major projection and above average athleticism, a little ahead of his young body.

Mike Gundy Tells Jim Rome He’s Considering Another Rant

first_imgGet out your bingo cards!Mike Gundy went on The Jim Rome Show last week to talk about OSU’s six-game winning streak and this weekend’s upcoming game against TCU.Rome asked him about the development of Mason Rudolph, the recruitment of James Washington and how the Cowboys respond so well in close games. But most importantly we had some mullet talk and the two discussed Gundy’s upcoming 50th birthday (in 2017).“I may need to have a party out in L.A. for 50. I need to put some thought into it. That might be a good place to do it,” Gundy said.The best part of the whole interview was when Gundy brought up his almost ten-year old rant and the possibility of staging a followup.“I’m thinking about doing some kind of draw to set up a re-make of the rant at 50 compared to 40, and to see if I could get a little social media coverage there for a little marketing for the team,” Gundy laughed.“We got to set it up. There’s enough people. You know, we have about four or five people that work in our facility now in football just on social media and communication in marketing over the internet. Surely one of those guys that’s a lot smarter than me can come up with a good way that can top that at 50.”That’s pretty amazing. He also commented on the election and the world we live in.“Everything has changed, Jim,” said Gundy. “You know the world you live in. There’s not any secrets. People have instant information on what’s going on out there in the world. Just like the election — all the different polls. The actual internet and social media polls were more accurate than the ones that were coming across your national media.”Check out the full interview below.
